Venezuela, July 25, 2011
Hugo Chávez, president of Venezuela, returned last Saturday to his country, after doing his treatment against the cancer in Cuba.
The Venezuelan leader declared to “Correo del Orinoco” that “he’ll go for the re-election for the period 2012-2016 despite being operated from a tumor the last 20 of June”.
“I have medical, human and political reasons to go for the new election and the candidacy for the presidency stronger than ever”.
Chávez underwent two medical interventions. The first one was the 11 of July where he declared that “Fidel Castro behaved as the leader of the Venezuelan and Cuban doctors that dedicated to fight against his diseases”.
The second intervention was performed on the 20 of July, which lasted six hours. Chavez also said that “Fidel visited me again to give me the results. We started to think and to do a great effort, caring for every detail so I could recover myself”.
Four days after he started with the chemotherapy and affirmed that “has started a great recuperation”. Finally he assured “I’ve never lost contact with my Government, specially with my vice-president Elías Jaua”.
