If Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez is in such a good health condition to sign an Act, then "I urge him to show up and speak to Venezuela and reveal what is going on with the Government, because it seems we do not have one," said reelected Miranda state governor Henrique Capriles Radonski during his inauguration speech. Reference was made to the decree appointing Elías Jaua as foreign minister, which was signed by Chávez.

Capriles Radonski stated that Jaua, who was his runner-up in the gubernatorial election held last December 16, was appointed as foreign minister as a reward for his defeat. "This demonstrates the relevance of the circumstances and means that we did the right thing."

Addressing local citizens, he said, "We are here for the sake of all."

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
