Venezuela's ruling party wants respect for Chávez's environment
Anzoátegui state governor and a leader of ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) Aristóbulo Istúriz made an appeal to keep on praying for Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez
Istúriz, also the governor of Anzoátegui state, together with Aragua state governor Tarek El Aissami and the head of Capital District, Jacqueline Farías, said that the president "is an early riser." Reference was made to Chávez's arrival at 2:30 a.m. from Cuba; the coup attempt of February 4, 1992 and the events of April 13, 2002.
"Today (Monday) he killed on the spot those who were saying silly things," Istúriz boasted during a press conference at the PSUV headquarters. "We must take care of the president's environment. We must understand that there are other patients at the Military Hospital and we ought to ensure the good working order. All of us, Caracas residents, are heading for Bolívar Square, and so on, at the Bolívar Square of every state. Let us respect peace and quiet at the Military Hospital. This is our call," he advised.
When we look at the issue of human rights in Venezuela and the relevant reports submitted each year, a clear pattern emerges, namely, the impunity following the violation of rights such as freedom of expression, political rights, and the right to life and personal integrity, which has Venezuela consistently ranking among the lowest scorers in assessment indices.
