Hugo Chávez Frías, the President of Venezuela, died after waging a long battle against cancer, treated in Havana since the middle of 2011. The president had traveled to Cuba in the final stage on December 8, 2012, two months after his fourth re-election to undergo his fourth surgery.

In his last public appearance, he designated Nicolás Maduro, the current Vice-President, his heir apparent.

Chávez Frías disclosed his illness also from Cuba, in June 2011.
