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.

"Cocoa is to Venezuelans what wine is to the French," says Alejandro Prosperi, head of the Venezuelan Chamber of Cocoa, using this simile to express the paramount importance or the cocoa industry for the country. Often times heralded as "the best cocoa in the world," a passion for quality dating back to the sixteenth century has made Venezuelan cocoa growers to enjoy high prestige at international level and their product to be among the most sought-after in the world.
