President Chávez is "stable"
The post-operative stage is "complex," as well as the surgery which took at least six hours, reported Venezuelan Minister of Communication and Information Ernesto Villegas in obligatory simultaneous broadcast
Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez's health condition is "stable," reported on Wednesday night Minister of Communication and Information Ernesto Villegas.
In a two-minute obligatory simultaneous broadcast, the minister read out a short communiqué, as instructed by Executive Vice-President Nicolás Maduro. It was briefed on the medical progress of the Head of State, who underwent in Havana, Cuba, a "complex" surgery that lasted over six hours.
"The patient is in stable conditions in his process," the notice reads. The post-operative stage "is complex as well," it added and urged the "Venezuelan people and fellow peoples to accompany the president with their prayers and expressions of solidarity which, for sure, reinforce him day after day."
José Vicente Rangel clearly said: "We are not conducting negotiations threatened with a gun in the head." He warned behind closed doors in the midst of the social upheaval occurred during the oil strike in 2002 and 2003. Dissenting Timoteo Zambrano answered back that no other option was available: "The thing is that otherwise, you do not negotiate."
