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."

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.
