 Venezuelan VP Says Hugo Chavez 'Battling for His Life'

Nicolas Maduro - Vice President of Venezuela says that President Hugo Chavez is continuing his battle for "health and life". The ailing president faces "delicate health condition" because he worked tirelessly without rest for the people, Maduro said during a public ceremonial event here.

The Venezuelan people cannot "stop giving thanks to God and ask him to permanently continue giving forces to Chavez to continue the battle for health and life," he said.

Maduro did not elaborate on the health of Chavez, who, as reported by the Venezuelan authorities, remains hospitalized in Dr. Carlos Arvelo Military Hospital in Caracas 11 days after returning to Venezuela. Recent photos showed Chavez reclining in a bed flanked by his two daughters.

Chavez, 58, who has been battling cancer since 2011, was re- elected to another six-year term in October 2012, following a contentious campaign against a coalition of conservative parties.
