This week, Latin Pulse has a special focus on Venezuela. With Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez still in Cuba receiving cancer treatments during an election year, questions have been raised about what that means not only for his country's politics but also politics throughout the hemisphere. The program includes in-depth discussion of Venezuela's electoral system, media, and issues related to free speech, along with what Venezuela's issues mean for the presidential race in the United States. The news segment of the program includes a short interview with the first lady of El Salvador regarding equality for women.
