Mujica not to visit Chávez because "there is no possibility to see him"
Doctors taking care of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez reported that visits are not allowed, said lawmaker Lucía Topolansky, the wife of Uruguayan President José Mujica
Mujica's intended trip to Havana "makes no sense" because doctors taking care of Chávez informed that visits are not allowed, said the legislator.
She added that they have been closely monitoring "with attention and concern" the news about Chávez's health, whom she described as a friend. She told local media, "We must wait and have faith."
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
