March 5th, 2013 The Death of the President of Venezuela Hugo Chavez died Tuesday due to his long and hard battle with cancer, his Next in Line Vice President Nicolas Maduro said in a News Report.
His VP Maduro teared up as he announced the news in a national broadcast.
Maduro said, plans for Chavez’s funeral would be announced.
Maduro said Chavez died Tuesday at exact;y 4:25 p.m. He did not say when the next elections would take place, or who would run the country in the interem.
“Our people can count on having a government of men and women committed to protecting them,” Maduro said.
The announcement came hours after Maduro met with the country’s top political and military leaders about Chavez’s worsening health condition and suggested someone may have deliberately infected Chavez with cancer.
Venezuela’s defense minister echoed Maduro’s calls for unity and peace.
Adm. Diego Molero said Venezuela’s military is in a “process of deploying … to ensure the safety of all Venezuelans” and to support the country’s constitution in the wake of Chavez’s death.
Molero pledged support to Maduro and National Assembly President Diosdado Cabello, two top officials who were close allies of the Venezuelan president.
Chavez first announced his cancer diagnosis in June 2011, but the government never revealed details about his prognosis or specified what kind of cancer he had.
He died nearly three months after his last public appearance.
The president was known for his frequent television broadcasts and lengthy speeches.
Shortly before his last trip to Cuba for cancer surgery in December, Chavez tapped Maduro as the man he wanted to replace him.
“He is one of the young leaders with the greatest ability to continue, if I cannot,” Chavez said.
Maduro made no mention of running for election in his public comments Tuesday, but he is widely expected to be the United Socialist Party of Venezuela’s candidate for the job.
After the announcement of Chavez’s death, state-run VTV showed images of people in the streets of Caracas crying and carrying posters with the late president’s picture.
Word of Chavez’s death drew swift expressions of sorrow and solidarity from regional allies.
“The national government expresses its solidarity in light of this irreparable loss that puts the Venezuelan people and all the region in mourning and at the same time sends its heartfelt condolences to the family of the late champion of Latin America,” Ecuador’s foreign ministry said in a statement.
Bolivian President Evo Morales’ voice cracked as he spoke to reporters, describing Chavez as someone “who gave all his life for the liberation of the Venezuelan people … of all the anti-imperialists and anti-capitalists of the world.”
But longtime critics of the controversial president offered a different take.
“Hugo Chavez was a destabilizing force in Latin America, and an obstacle to progress in the region,” said U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. “I hope his death provides an opportunity for a new chapter in U.S.-Venezuelan relations.”
Here in Cuba on a week long holiday – felt like I was caught in a time-warp .. Cuba is home to over 60,000 vehicles still on the road, from the 40s, 50s (Photos: http://bit.ly/103Ms3L) & early 60s as a result of the American embargo against the country enacted in 1962. Everywhere you look, in the cities & on the highways, you’ll see these classic cars rumbling down the roads …. and most are in pristine condition .. they fix them up, take great pride in restoring them & pass them down through their families.
