"It is time to make decision," in Venezuela, said Secretary-General of the Organization of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza as he pronounced on the long convalescence of President Hugo Chávez.

Referring to the return of the head of state to Venezuela on February 16, Insulza told BBC Mundo that "it was what everybody expected."

"Chávez has been by all means a leader in Venezuela for 14 years. You cannot expect that his supporters take aside or choose another (successor) all of a sudden," the OAS's secretary-general said, by adding that the Venezuelan Government has made a good decision at taking its time to see whether the situation gets back to normal.

Insulza criticized that Chávez's absence has been mostly addressed from the legal point of view, taking aside the political perspective.

With reference to branches of government, Insulza stressed that "the problem was in the judiciary (...) certainly, there are some boundaries in its independence in different countries, including Venezuela."

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.
