Venezuela’s Chavez News of Second Operation Provokes Opposition and Press Rumours |

Mérida, February 22nd 2012 –  Yesterday Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez announced that he would require another operation, this time to extract a lesion from the pelvic region of his body. Opposition spokespeople and international press have speculated about the seriousness of the surgery, suggesting “uncertainty” before the presidential elections.Chavez said that he would be operated on this weekend in Havana, Cuba, by the same doctors who extracted his cancerous tumour last June. The lesion is 2cm in diameter and was detected last Saturday during his four-monthly check up in Cuba.The lesion has “high possibilities of being malignant,” he said, emphasising that there was no need to “be alarmed” and reminding Venezuelans that today he would continue with his “normal presidential agenda”. He clarified that he wouldn’t be active at his “normal rhythm” over the next few weeks.“They will operate on me again, they’ll take the lesion out, they’ll verify if it’s related to the last tumour or not, and based on that we’ll inform [the public],” Chavez said.
