"Holes" in Venezuelan Constitution: South Florida Expert

The political situation in Venezuela remains uncertain, and it is unclear who will run the government if cancer-stricken leader Hugo Chavez cannot attend his swearing-in for another term as president on Thursday. The attorney general said Vice President Nicolas Maduro would run the country until Chavez can be officially sworn in. But others in the government said that Diosado Cabello, who heads the National Assembly, ought to be in charge of the government. "There are some holes in the law, and some holes in the constitution. This is a new constitution that was done by his reform," said Rodrigo Azpurua, a Venezuelan businessman who relocated to South Florida, of Chavez.
