No medical reports, photos or video footage of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez were disclosed during the first 24 hours of the president's stay in Venezuela. Neither details on the president's condition were provided by the Venezuelan Government or ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV).

On Tuesday, Executive Vice-President Nicolás Maduro and Congress' Speaker Diosdado Cabello chaired a meeting with Bolivian President Evo Morales, who traveled to Venezuela to visit the Venezuelan head of state.

"The Bolivian people are happy, content, and excited about Chávez's return to Venezuela," President Morales told TV multi-state news television channel Telesur.

By press time, no official information about a meeting between the Bolivian and Venezuelan presidents had been released. However, quoting sources from the Information and Communication Ministry, private news TV channel Globovisión stated that the two leaders had actually met. No details were provided.

President Chávez's daughter, María Gabriela Chávez, twitted, "It was a beautiful meeting with our brother, Evo. He has come to support us and express the love of the Bolivian people."

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.
