Venezuela: Maduro to take oath as acting president
Thursday - 3/7/2013, 10:50pm EST
CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- The speaker of Venezuela's National Assembly says Vice President Nicolas Maduro will be sworn in as acting president Friday night, the same day a state funeral is held for Hugo Chavez.
Legislature chief Diosdado Cabello made the announcement on national television Thursday night.
On Tuesday, after announcing the president's death, the government said Maduro would both be acting president and the presidential candidate of the governing party.
The opposition cried foul. Venezuela's constitution specifies that upon Chavez's death, Cabello should have become interim president and elections for a new president called within 30 days.
The government said Tuesday that the election would be convoked in 30 days. It is not clear when they will be held.
