Thousands from over 90 countries gave "a fraternal embrace to the revolutionary people of Venezuela and expresses their most heartfelt solidarity, in the profound confidence that President Cha'vez will overcome all his difficulties."

Hermanos Saiz Association President Luis Morlote read the message. Cuban Union of Writers and Artists President Miguel Barnet said its purpose is to let Chavez know he's "not alone and to send him a breadth of optimism and energy from all the peoples of Latin America and the world."

"It also serves to refute the malign campaign unleashed by the extreme and recalcitrant right of Venezuela and many other countries in relation to Chavez's state of health and the future of Venezuela and Latin America."

Barnet called him "the author of a project for the renovation of our socialism."

On January 9, Venezuela's Supreme Tribunal of Justice postponed Chavez's January 10 inauguration. An unspecified later date will be named.

Seven magistrates voted unanimously. Chief Justice Luisa Morales said:

"As president reelect, there is no interruption of performance of duties."

"The inauguration can be carried out at a later date before the Supreme Court."

She said Chavez's absence is neither "temporary" or "absolute." National Assembly legislators unanimously approved his travel to Havana for treatment.

"The circumstances in which we can talk of a temporary absence of the president have not taken place," she explained. It's for Chavez declare himself temporarily absent. 

Morales distinguished between swearing-in and beginning a new term. It's a formality. It's not indispensable to holding an elected position.

Venezuelan "executive power (includes) the president, vice president(s), ministers and other organs, as well as administration officials," she said.

They'll "continue to carry out their functions under the principle of administrative continuity."

The Court ruled that Chavez was reelected. He didn't win for the first time. Magistrates reflected the will of the people. That's how democracy is supposed to work.
