Chavez can rule without being sworn in

Filed under: Breaking News |

The Venezuelan government has said President Hugo Chavez can begin his
new six-year term in office on Thursday, even if he is too ill to
attend a swearing-in ceremony.

Vice-President Nicolas Maduro said the Supreme Court could swear in Mr
Chavez at a later date.

He dismissed opposition calls for new elections should Mr Chavez not attend.

President Chavez is in Cuba struggling to recover from his latest
round of surgery to treat cancer.

He has not been seen by the Venezuelan public since the operation more
than three weeks ago.
