Chávez appreciates loyalty of the Venezuelan army
Executive Vice-President Nicolás Maduro noted that Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez sent the End Year Message from Havana
Joined by the high military command and top leaders of ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), Maduro claimed to be fully subordinate to the Venezuelan leader and proceeded to read out the message. In there, Chávez appreciates the army loyalty "at this very complex and difficult time."
The ceremony took place in eastern Anzoátegui state.
The story could have been different. On April 12, 2014, university students led a march to the Attorney General Office in order to submit concrete requests in regards to security and to demand the release of a group of youngsters detained in Táchira state.
