Venezuelan VP: Chávez is sick for meeting people's needs
The Venezuelan vice-president condemned the way the opposition has approached the situation of the head of state
"The leader of this revolution is going through a delicate health situation because he worked for his people taking no rest or break whatsoever. He spent too many nights without sleeping, thinking about how to better off the homes, the services, and the quality of life, in general terms, of Venezuelans," Maduro stressed.
With reference to requests made by the Venezuelan opposition asking for a proof attesting that the Venezuelan leader is still alive or the due appointment of a medical team to certify Chávez's current health condition, Maduro remarked, "They (dissenters), the traitors, will never believe in anything being told to the people, nor will they believe that he (Chávez) is fighting to get better. They do not even respect citizen's prayers aimed at his (Chávez) recovery.

The very early morning after the presidential election (April 15), both candidates requested the National Electoral Council (CNE) to conduct a full audit of the process: one, Henrique Capriles, because he asserts that the election results are different from the ones announced, and the other one, Nicolás Maduro, in order to clear any doubt regarding his victory, and to reinforce his political stance. Nevertheless, as it is already known, President Maduro changed his mind.
