Venezuela stages inauguration rally without Chavez
AFP Updated January 11, 2013, 8:46 am

CARACAS (AFP) - Tens of thousands of flag-waving Venezuelans packed central Caracas Thursday in a fervent inauguration day rally for President Hugo Chavez, who was too sick in Cuba to make it himself.

Fighter jets streaked the length of this mountain valley as allies from around the region, showered praise on the cancer-stricken leader one after another and pledged their undying support.

"Long live Chavez!" shouted Vice President Nicolas Maduro. "Long live the people of Bolivar."

A sea of red shirts and flags, the color of Chavez's socialist movement, filled the avenue in front of the Miraflores presidential palace where participants were to take a symbolic oath for Chavez.

The crowd delivered a booming rendition of the national anthem and roared with approval for the tributes from leftist leaders like Bolivia's Evo Morales, Uruguay's Jose Mujica and ousted Paraguayan leader Fernando Lugo.
