VP Maduro: Chávez post-operative stage to be "complex, tough"
The operation performed on President Hugo Chávez on Tuesday was "complex, difficult, delicate"
"We assessed the operation and would like to tell Venezuelans that the operation Tuesday was actually a complex, difficult, delicate operation, which means that the post-operative stage will be also a complex and tough process," he said, in company with Minister of Energy and Petroleum Rafael Ramírez and Congress Speaker Diosdado Cabello.
The top officer explained that both Ramírez and Cabello came back early on Wednesday (3:00 a.m.) from Havana and they talked "until dawn was breaking" about the surgery.
Maduro is certain that "the objectiveness that should make us deal with this situation" is a characteristic feature in the contacts between the Executive Office and the president's treating doctors.
They are marching in step to the same tune. There is a coordinated effort to position the idea. The Twitter hashtag #YoSoyVictimaDeLaGuarimba (I'm a victim of "guarimbas", or protest barricades) can be read on all pro-government Twitter accounts, including those of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), the National Assembly's Press Office, the state-run food distribution network PDVAL, state airline Conviasa, the Venezuelan embassies in foreign countries, radio stations and the huge media network responsive to the Government's interests and messages.
