Todo el poder a Chávez

Humberto Márquez, desde Caracas

El Estado venezolano tomará en tres meses el control de toda la
producción de petróleo y de las principales empresas de electricidad,
anunció el presidente Hugo Chávez al promulgar la norma con la que el
parlamento lo autorizó a decretar leyes sobre casi todas las áreas de la
vida nacional.

Chavez gets sweeping new powers

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has been granted new special powers
after an extraordinary assembly vote in the main square of the capital,

Mr Chavez will now be able to rule by decree for the next 18 months.

His planned reforms will affect the energy sector, telecommunications,
the economy and defence, among others.

Mr Chavez has said the legislation will transform the country into a
socialist society. Opponents describe the new law as an abuse of power.

In the open-air public ceremony in the capital, lawmakers voted
unanimously to grant the Venezuelan leader the new powers, shouting:
"Long live Socialism."

Congressional Vice President Roberto Hernandez said the assembly passed
the law so Mr Chavez could "urgently set up the framework for
resolving the grave problems we have".

According to the so-called enabling law, the president can remake laws
for "the construction of a new, sustainable economic and social
model" to achieve an equal distribution of wealth.

Mr Chavez will be able to effect change by presidential decree in 11
broad areas.

Commanding position

It is expected that President Chavez will, in effect, nationalise the
oil and gas industries, taking a majority share in their ownership.

The move will involve companies like Exxon, BP and Chevron but it is
uncertain what, if any, form of compensation those companies might

Mr Chavez has popular support after his re-election victory last year,
the assembly has been on his side since the opposition boycotted
parliamentary elections in 2005, and Venezuela is reaping huge revenues
from high oil prices.

He wants to scrap presidential term limits and rewrite the constitution
to build what he calls "socialism for the 21st Century".

Officials say he has no intention of turning Venezuela into a communist
state, arguing that freedom of speech and religion will all be safe.

But the US has again been critical of his leadership.

John Negroponte told a hearing to confirm his position as the new deputy
secretary of state that Mr Chavez has not been a "constructive force
in the hemisphere".

"He has been trying to export his kind of radical populism and I
think that his behaviour is threatening to democracies in the
region," Mr Negroponte said.

Hurricane Hugo

Texto Completo : Pagina Internet

In the past month, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez has announced the
nationalization of his country's electricity and telecommunication
industries, seized control of the central bank, barred the renewal of the
license of the nation's oldest independent television station, and
assumed the power to rule by presidential decree. But as Chávez
consolidates his economic and political power and Venezuela hurtles down
the road toward Cuban-style socialism, he continues to lack a viable
strategy for development, as Michael Shifter reminded Foreign
Affairs readers last summer. Washington can thus best confront him
indirectly in the realm of ideas — and ultimately prevail.
