Communication minister: The only incumbent president is Hugo Chávez

"The fact that the President of the Republic is taking a sick leave, as provided for in the Constitution and unanimously authorized by the National Assembly, and that he has bestowed some of his powers on the vice-president is not a reason to disavow his incumbency and tenure," said Communication Minister Ernesto Villegas

Minister of Communication and Information Ernesto Villegas admonished Globovisión television channel in a letter for describing Nicolás Maduro as "acting president," executive vice-president and foreign minister.

"The only incumbent president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is Hugo Chávez, the winner of the October 7 vote, when he was re-elected with 8,191,132 ballots for the 2013-2019 presidential term," Villegas said in a letter to Globovisión via his Twitter account, Efe reported.

Villegas described as "unacceptable the fact that a broadcast licensee that exploits a portion of the radio-electric space that belongs to the Venezuelan people affords to issue a formal communication with such nonsense."

According to the minister, the private television network, which maintains a strong critical line towards the government, sent a communication calling Maduro "acting president." President Chávez bestowed some of his powers on Maduro and designated him as his candidate in case his health condition prevents him from taking office again as President of Venezuela, a position he has held since 1999.

"The fact that the President of the Republic is taking a sick leave, as provided for in the Constitution and unanimously authorized by the National Assembly, and that he has bestowed some of his powers on the vice-president is not a reason to disavow his incumbency and tenure," said Villegas in his letter.

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
