Considering President Hugo Chávez's notification that he would not attend his inauguration ceremony, scheduled for January 10 under the Venezuelan Constitution, president of the Supreme Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) Luisa Estella Morales on Tuesday declared that since Chávez is a reelected president, he does not need to take oath again on January 10.

"Even though a new presidential term begins on January 10, a new inauguration is not necessary because he (Hugo Chávez) is a reelected president," said Morales, adding that the decision was made by the Constitutional Court, TSJ, in response to an action seeking construction of Article 231 of the Venezuelan Constitution.

She stressed that the decision was made based on the grounds of administrative continuation.

Morales' statements came during a news conference broadcast in a mandatory radio and television address, where she said that the ruling of the Constitutional Court was made "in order to bring certainty and peace to Venezuelans, as provided for under the Constitution."

A significant number of Venezuelan and foreign reporters waited for more than three hours for the Venezuelan top court to disclose the decision.
