VP: Chávez is going through a slow recovery process
Nicolás Maduro said Venezuelan people are "ready to face difficulties, whatever it is." "None of us is Chávez, but we all together are Chávez, if we are united." He reckoned that only unity would help "tame the rabid monster of the right wing"
Executive Vice-President Nicolás Maduro said Friday that President Hugo Chávez is going through a "slow" recovery process and that he is "in a battle, clinging to Christ." He recalled that in recent days he was in Havana, Cuba, where he met with the Venezuelan president.
Maduro said the Venezuelan people are "ready to face difficulties, whatever it is." "None of us is Chávez, but we all together are Chávez, if we are united."
In this regard, he said that "everything this Government does is for the aggrandizement of the fatherland." He noted that every year, more "room for happiness" is made in Venezuela.
On the other hand, he reckoned that only unity would help "tame the rabid monster of the right wing," which he termed "pro-imperialist, neoliberal and pro-privatization", and "deeply corrupt."
At least 30 years had passed since his last visit to Caracas. He had little time to become an expert on moving about in such a complicated metropolis. Whether it was hopping on the subway, finding directions, playing waiting games at public agencies, eating whatever he could and sleeping wherever he could, Guerrero senior had been wandering the streets for 60 days, and thanks to "the boys" he found some sort of relief by way of helping hands.
