Chavez Allies Contemplating Election Without Him, Tal Cual Says

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez’s allies are preparing for a scenario in which his battle with cancer will prevent him from competing in October’s vote, Tal Cual reported, citing Wilmar Castro, head of planning for Chavez’s re-election campaign.

Chavez’s allies should also be prepared for a scenario in which they will have to campaign with a weakened Chavez or where the elections are canceled altogether, the Caracas-based daily cited Castro as saying during a meeting of different factions of the re-election campaign.
