Chavez can now get his new surgery

ASAMBLEA-NACIONALThe National Assembly has unanimously approved the request of President Hugo Chavez to leave the country and go to Cuba for his fourth surgery in 18 months.

You didn’t miss much: The opposition asked for Chavez’s recovery and urged for more details about his current condition. Chavista deputies insulted and attacked them instead.

Chavez will continue as President for the time being. Nicolas Maduro is still VP. For now.
