Accompanied by the Bolivian and Uruguayan heads of state and other leaders from Latin America and the Caribbean, Venezuela's Vice-President Nicolás Maduro led a pro-Chávez mass rally held in Caracas on Thursday in support of the continuity of Hugo Chávez's Government, as ruled by Venezuela's top court. The rally began with a recording of the voice of President Hugo Chávez singing the National Hymn.

Addressing Chávez's supporters, Paraguayan president Fernando Lugo said, "I am confident that our comrade Hugo is the person most interested in being here, but who says he is not here? He is in every woman, peasant..."   

For his part, Dominica Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said, on behalf of oil alliance Petrocaribe and the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA), that Venezuela may rely on a true friend, Dominica.

Likewise, senior officials representing Argentina and Haiti addressed supporters to express their support to Hugo Chávez's Government.

Similarly, St. Vincent & The Grenadines Prime Minister Raph Gonsalves extolled the Venezuelan people's "discipline" and the "support" expressed to President Chávez.
