Ecuador's President Rafael Correa, reelected on Sunday with almost 57% of votes, said on Monday that Latin America barely needs "good leaders" able to prevent a comeback to the past and voiced happiness about President Hugo Chávez's return to Venezuela.

In an exclusive interview with South American TV network Telesur the day after his landslide victory, Correa urged Chávez to take care of his health and focus on his recovery, Efe quoted.

"We, Venezuela, Latin America, need you," Correa address himself to Chávez. The Venezuelan Head of State returned to his country after spending two months in Cuba, where he underwent surgery for his cancer last December 11. Chávez was admitted to Caracas military hospital on Monday.

"All of us are necessary, yet nobody is nonexpendable," the Ecuadorian president said. Immediately after, he claimed to admire Chávez, regarded by him as "an icon of the revolution and change in Venezuela and Latin America."

Correa wished his counterpart "getting well as soon as possible."

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.
