FM Jaua: Chávez is ruling; that is why I was appointed Foreign Minister

For Elías Jaua, nobody should "have absolutely no doubt" that Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez is "holding office" from Cuba

The brand-new Venezuelan Minister of Foreign Affairs, Elías Jaua, said on Thursday that President Hugo Chávez, admitted to hospital five weeks ago in Cuba, "is ruling and making decisions." Evidence of it is his appointment last Tuesday.

"If I am the foreign minister, it is because the president is ruling and making decisions," he told Colombian Blu radio during an interview. Jaua contended that no other Venezuelan government official is empowered to appoint or dismiss ministers, Efe quoted.

"Neither Vice-President Nicolás Maduro nor I would dare make such insensible thing," he added.

For Jaua, nobody should "have absolutely no doubt" that Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez is "holding office" from Cuba. Therefore, he asked the opposition to respect "the legitimacy of the Bolivarian government of Venezuela and abandon the way of anxiety and uncertainty."

"Our people are aware that President Hugo Chávez must get well and that is their major concern," he remarked.

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.
