This article cites examples showing that El Presidente Chávez has become weaker in both spirit and body. If the Venezuelan presidential election is held as scheduled on October 7th, and if as former President Carter is reported to have proclaimed last week “the election process in Venezuela is the best in the world,” it is becoming increasingly likely that Chávez faces a drubbing.
While President Hugo Chavez has made a valiant effort to campaign or appear to be campaigning as much as opposition candidate Henrique Capriles, his efforts to appear more in public seem to be having the opposite effect. Every time Chavez appears in public, it seems to take a toll on him, forcing him to cancel rallies that had been announced previously.
Last week, President Chavez was not that visible until his Apure appearance, which in itself was a surprise as he should have no problem winning that state. In that appearance he left some doubts about both his health and his emotional state that left many questions lingering in the air.
The next day Chavez was supposed to appear in Los Teques to inaugurate four subway stations, but he failed to show up, sending his Vice-President instead in a city that is likely to go for Capriles.
