Venezuela: Chavez daughters won't leave president's palace

The daughters of late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez are preventing his successor from moving into the official presidential residence, it's claimed.

Rosa Virginia and Maria Gabriela Chavez are still living in La Casona palace in Caracas even though President Nicolas Maduro has ordered them out, Spain's ABC daily reports.

The daughters have reportedly had "several altercations" with the president and his wife, and refuse to leave the palace that has been their home for more than a decade.

As a result, ABC says, the president has to spend some nights at the Mountain Barracks, where Hugo Chavez is buried. In television appearances, Maduro says he draws inspiration from the proximity of his predecessor's tomb.

Wonder if Maduro has used his decree powers to evict the squatters yet.

3. And who isn't

A Chavista coup within the next 24 months would not be surprising.
