The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, honored Commander Hugo Chávez this Friday.
On the occasion of the eighth anniversary of the commander’s physical departure, Maduro participated in the salute, in a joint radio and television broadcast.
Together with the first combatant woman, Cilia Flores, the president witnessed the activity from the People’s Balcony in Miraflores Palace.
Meanwhile, the deputy and leader of the Revolution, Diosdado Cabello, among other officials were participants in the activities at the Cuartel de la Montaña (Mountain Barracks).
Chávez’s mortal remains rest in this barracks, located in the 23 de Enero parish in Caracas, the place from where he commanded the Rebellion of February 4, 1992.
From the early hours of this Friday in various regions of Venezuela events were held for such anniversary.
Also, as part of the schedule were held talks organized by the Hugo Chávez Foundation, which will run until March 7.
Likewise, the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB) carried out a march through the city of Caracas, as well as in other states of the country.
Commander Chávez physically departed on March 5, 2013, after battling for two years with cancer.
His remains were in a burning chapel for several days at the Military Academy of the Bolivarian Army, in Fort Tiuna, in Caracas.
