President Hugo Chavez has been compared with the dictator Adolf Hitler by political opponents after he vow to rule two more decades in Venezuela. Giving an interview to the leading newspaper he said he has never thought stepping down presidency despite of the health battle with cancer.
Mr Chavez is already in power since 1999 and has predicted for more two decade rule there. He said 2020 would be a golden decade for his country if he is there. He added the only successor to Hugo Chavez is Hugo Chavez.
Political experts on this comment remark strongly as dictators didn’t have legitimacy. They added if Venezuela continues under his presidency then there is huge chance of big political crises which ends up with a revolution. Under Venezuela’s current constitution, Mr Chavez would have to win three more elections in 2012, 2018 and 2024 in order to retain power. As a personal view to add if this happens then the Venezuela citizens will face a demerit of monarchy and has to be prepared for a big revolution.
