Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is recovering in Cuba following his fourth cancer-related surgery in 18 months.
CNN has details.

“The vice president of Venezuela telling his country that the operation was complex, it lasted more than 6 hours and was completed successfully and correctly.”

58-year-old Chavez has never made public what type of cancer he has.
In June of 2011, he underwent his first cancer-related surgery and announced he was tumor-free.
In February of this year, he said the cancer was back and would require more surgery.
In July, he announced he was again cancer-free.
But this past weekend Chavez said he would need to undergo surgery again.

Before this week’s surgery, Chavez acknowledged he could die and, for the first time, named a successor -- Vice President Nicolas Maduro.
Here’s Bloomberg.

“Maduro is a former bus driver and union activist. He was head of the national assembly and he was named foreign minister in 2006. Maduro still holds that job even after he was announced as vice president in October.”

According to the Huffington Post, if he were to die, the constitution says the new elections should be held within 30 days.
Chavez is set to be sworn into a new six-year-term in January after winning re-election in October.
