Venezuela’s Chavez Held 5-Hour Meeting With Cabinet

Venezuela’s Chavez Held 5-Hour Meeting With Cabinet
By Nathan Crooks - Feb 23, 2013 1:37 AM CT.

Venezuela’s ailing President Hugo Chavez discussed economic policy and national security with his cabinet for five hours yesterday at a military hospital in Caracas, Vice President Nicolas Maduro said.

Chavez and his team worked on measures to fight inflation and guarantee resources for public spending, economic policy moves to be announced over the coming weeks, Maduro said last night on state television.

“The president was clear about the speculative attack on our currency and product hoarding and said that we have to increase actions to fight the economic war being waged by the bourgeois,” Maduro said.

Chavez communicated by written notes during the meeting, Maduro said. The one-time paratrooper is under intensive treatment for “respiratory insufficiency” and can’t speak because of a breathing tube.
