Argenis Chávez: President Chávez's return is in his doctors' hands
Argenis Chávez dismissed the information released on Monday by The Associated Press (AP) about the return of President Hugo Chávez to Venezuela in the coming days
Argenis Chávez, who is also the vice-minister for electric development, denied the information released on Monday by news agency The Associated Press (AP), according to which he would have claimed that his brother and Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez would return to the country in the next few days.
"Spokespersons are Executive Vice-President of the Republic Nicolás Maduro and Minister of Communication and Information Ernesto Villegas, who through the Bolivarian government's official media have provided details on the health of the President of the Republic, Hugo Chávez Frías," stressed Argenis Chávez, through a press release from Corpoelec.
Chávez is recovering in Havana, Cuba, after a surgery he underwent on December 11, 2012.
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
