HAVANA TIMES – The official site Cubadebate.cu published Tuesday a series of photos of a “personal encounter” between a political analyst and host of a TV program in Venezuela and former Cuban President Fidel Castro.
The report emphasizes the good health and lucidity of the senior advisor of his brother Raul Castro’s government.
“Vigorous, healthy, lucid, intelligent, on top of countless numbers and measures, names and situations that leave anyone speechless,” said Miguel Angel Perez Pirela, referring to the four-hour visit he made to Castro in Havana on March 31, noted Cubadebate.cu
“Without a doubt, he’s one of the most intelligent human beings ever born in Latin America and humanity,” said Perez Pirela, reporting that Fidel listened to sound advice and analysis on Venezuela, Latin America and the world, at a time when Venezuelans are still in pain and sadness at the passing of Chavez.
Venezuela holds presidential elections this Sunday April 14 to replace Hugo Chavez. The main candidates are Nicolas Maduro, Chavez’s hand-picked successor, and Henrique Capriles the opposition coalition candidate who lost to Chavez 55-44% in the October 7, 2012 elections.
