VENEZUELA-POLITICS-CHAVEZ-HEALTH

A woman walks past a mural of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in Caracas were the streets are practically deserted on January 1, 2013. Somber Venezuelans began 2013 fretting over their ubiquitous and garrulous leader Hugo Chavez, wondering what the future holds as the president wages a tough battle with cancer in a Havana hospital. New Year's Eve revelry was tempered, and official acts -- two open air concerts -- were canceled outright out of respect for the ex-paratrooper who has dominated this oil-rich country so thoroughly since taking power in 1999. Chavez underwent his fourth cancer-related surgery three weeks ago in Havana and has been bed-ridden ever since. Information on his condition is scant, with the government admitting only to 'complications' in his recovery. AFP PHOTO/LEO RAMIREZ (Photo credit should read LEO RAMIREZ/AFP/Getty Images)
