In his first message, Maduro reiterated his commitment to Chavez and his legacy. He also gave some details about the Venezuelan delegation that will visit the Vatican for the new Pope's inauguration (Francis I).

Since last week, Maduro has again caused some controversy by declaring that the United States plans to kill his opponent, Henrique Capriles, to create chaos in Venezuela.
The United States in response to Maduros statement has denied the fact, and Capriles, who initiated his presidential campaign on March 14, said that if anything happened to him, then the only person behind it would be Nicolas Maduro.
