"The president (Hugo Chávez) is aware of his situation. He maintains communication with his Government staff, with his relatives in Havana, Cuba (...) The president is the president; there is no other president. I am sure that those who are making an evil bet on a fatal outcome will be very disappointed," said Minister of Information and Communication Ernesto Villegas, in an interview with journalist Vladimir Villegas in Union Radio.

The minister added that on January 10, a presidential term began "with the President of the Republic. We are not starting it without him. We are with him." Further, he warned that although the Head of State is not in Venezuela, he still rules. He said this is the same case of US President Barack Obama. "Sometimes he (Obama) has not been in the United States and he has continued to be in office. When a president is asleep, he is still the president. We cannot fall into the trap of thinking that Venezuela does not have a president."

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
