"He is doing much better; he is recovering. It has been a tough battle, but he has shown some progress. We must heal him. Chávez is very important for his country and Latin America," Fidel Castro told local media on Sunday after he attended a school in Havana where he cast his vote, official newspaper Granma reported.
The Cuban leader also remarked that he is given "daily" reports about Chávez's health, EFE cited.
Hugo Chávez (58) remains in Havana since December 11, 2012, when he had his fourth cancer surgery. Chávez was diagnosed with cancer in June 2011.

Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
