Venezuela Parliament chief visits Chavez

The head of Venezuela’s National Assembly has flown to Cuba to join the Vice-President and other members of the Government at the bedside of ailing President Hugo Chavez, a local paper reported.

Diosdado Cabello “travelled on Wednesday afternoon to Havana,” the pro-government Ultimas Noticias reported. “It is unknown what agenda brought Cabello to make the visit.”

The Cuban capital has become the hub for decisions about the future of Venezuela’s Government, with the January 10 date for Chavez’s planned inauguration fast approaching.

The Venezuelan Constitution calls for new elections within 30 days if the President-elect is unable to take the oath of office. And, under the Constitution, in this situation, the President of the Parliament becomes interim President.
