Respect the democratic will of the Venezuelan people – no to right-wing destabilisation plans

Venezuelan Vice President Nicolas Maduro announced on Friday (4 January) that President Hugo Chavez’s new term of office will begin this Thursday 10 January, in line with the country’s Constitution. Hugo Chavez won a record number of votes to be re-elected President with a landslide 55% last October.

Vice President Maduro explained that the official Presidential swearing in ceremony can be done at a later date by the Supreme Court, in line with Articles 231-235 of Venezuela’s constitution, once Chávez returns from Cuba where he is undergoing treatment for cancer.
