Venezuela's Congress' Deputy Speaker Darío Vivas has informed that since President Hugo Chávez has been granted permission by the Congress to get well, Vice-President Nicolás Maduro planned to present on Tuesday the Government's Report for fiscal year 2012.
Vivas said in a radio broadcast that the event would be held at 4:00 pm (Local time), but it is unknown whether opposition deputies, who have been invited, would attend the event. "Some of them say there is not a Government as such. Nicolás Maduro will be delivering a speech, though," Vivas said.
