`Hugo Chavez`s battle for health, life continues`

President Hugo Chavez is continuing his battle for "health and life" following his recent cancer treatment, said Venezuela`s Vice President Nicolas Maduro.



Caracas: President Hugo Chavez is continuing his battle for "health and life" following his recent cancer treatment, said Venezuela`s Vice President Nicolas Maduro on Thursday.

The 58-year-old Chavez has been battling cancer since 2011. He was re- elected to another six-year term in October 2012, following a contentious campaign against a coalition of conservative parties.

The ailing President faces "delicate health condition" because he worked tirelessly without rest for the people, said the country`s Vice President during a public ceremonial event here, Xinhua reported.

Maduro did not elaborate on the health of Chavez, who, as reported by the Venezuelan authorities, remains hospitalised in a military hospital in Caracas, 11 days after returning to Venezuela.
