In a letter sent to the President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, his Nicaraguan counterpart Daniel Ortega and Vice President Rosario Murillo highlighted how a decade after his farewell, Chávez continues to be the drive and force to continue the fight.

“How not to live the legacy of Chávez 10 years after that historic farewell that was also, and is, perpetual breath, a sacred flame in our lives,” the letter said.

The text highlights that living the legacy left by the Latin American leader “reinstated the glory of our peoples,” as well as created the duty to incorporate their values ​​into life and “our paths of struggle.”

On December 8, 2012, Commander Hugo Chávez made his last public address on national television in which he asked the Venezuelan people to elect President Nicolás Maduro as their president if he could not continue in the face of the revolution.

The ties between Venezuela and Nicaragua are so deep and important for both nations that even in 2019 the Central American country legislated that every January 11 the day of friendship between the two States be celebrated.
