CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - Opposition leaders are accusing President Hugo Chavez of failing to fully inform Venezuelans about his health.
Government opponents say the president's condition following surgery in Cuba should not be shrouded in secrecy.
Top government officials and close relatives insist that Chavez is recuperating following surgery two weeks ago on a pelvic abscess. But president's seclusion since the operation has spurred speculation about his health.
Venezuelan officials say that Chavez is recuperating but have provided few details.
Opposition lawmaker Miguel Angel Rodriguez said Sunday that Chavez and his confidants must be straightforward about such a serious issue.
