Caracas: A Venezuelan government TV channel says President Hugo Chavez is expected to seek approval from lawmakers to return to Cuba for a new round of cancer treatment.

The official channel of the National Assembly says on its website that lawmakers tomorrow plan to take up Chavez`s request to travel to Cuba for his third phase of chemotherapy.

Chavez said in a newspaper column published yesterday that he was preparing for a "possible" new round of chemotherapy and that all of his hair has fallen out as a result of the treatment.
In his column, Chavez also saluted a group of young people in the Dominican Republic who shaved their heads in solidarity. State media reported that six of the Dominicans arrived on Saturday night to meet with Chavez.
