Chávez tells newspaper that he will run again

Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez says in a new interview that he will seek another six-year term next year even as he struggles to overcome cancer.

President Chávez made the remark in an interview published Monday in the government newspaper Correo del Orinoco. The president said he has not thought for a moment about leaving his post and that he would have left the job if he had valid health reasons to do so. Chávez said he is pursuing his candidacy with more strength than before.
