Caracas, April 26 (RHC) -- Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez arrived home early Thursday after undergoing a fourth round of radiation treatment for cancer in Cuba.
Upon his arrival at the Simon Bolivar International Airport in Maiquetía, the Venezuelan leader expressed his satisfaction to be back home and said that starting in May the government will advance several initiatives to improve the working conditions of Venezuelans with the enactment of the new Organic Labor Law.
