CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has resumed his Sunday television and radio program after a hiatus of about seven months due to his cancer treatment.
Chavez launched the program in typical style, attacking his political opponents while visiting an oil project in eastern Venezuela.
The leftist president says it seems there are divisions within the opposition.
He also called for a round of applause during Sunday's program for his new defense minister, Gen. Henry Rangel Silva. The U.S. has accused Rangel of aiding drug traffickers and Colombian rebels.
The 57-year-old president had a tumor removed from his pelvic region in June and underwent four rounds of chemotherapy. He has repeatedly said he is now cancer-free.
