Supreme Court in Venezuela postpones Chávez’ inauguration

Venezuela’s Supreme Court decided that it isn’t necessary for  President Hugo Chavez to be sworn in on Thursday and that the ceremony can be postponed. According to the Court, Chávez was reelected, therefore the swearing in is simply a “formality” and the current administration can continue until Chávez can resume his duties.

The President still hasn’t been released from a hospital in Cuba where he underwent surgery early in December and then developed a respiratory infection.

According to the Supreme Court President, Luz Estella Morales, “there is neither temporary nor absolute absence” in this case; the president will need to be sworn in, but there’s a difference between that act and the new constitutional period, “they are two different issues,” she said.
