President Hugo Chavez is going through a difficult recovery after cancer surgery in Cuba


Venezuelan Information Minister Ernesto Villegas has said that President Hugo Chavez is going through a difficult recovery after cancer surgery in Cuba and is in “stable condition.” The minister expressed hope Wednesday night about Chavez returning home for his January 10 swearing-in for a new six-year term. But Villegas said in a written message on a government website that if Chavez doesn’t make it, “our people should be prepared to understand it.” Vice President Nicolas Maduro said that Chavez faced a “complex and hard” process after his latest surgery. “We’re more united than ever,” said Maduro, appearing on television together with members of Chavez’s inner circle.
