That this House deeply regrets the untimely death of President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela; notes that Hugh Chavez was four times elected president of Venezuela by a majority of the voters in elections considered free and fair by international monitors, including former US President Jimmy Carter; further notes that he was subject to a coup attempt and attempted assassination organised by his enemies in Venezuela and the US; further notes that he led the Bolivarian Revolution which lifted millions of people out of abject poverty in Venezuela; further notes that he was a steadfast and unflinching opponent of Western imperialism and a supporter of the poor and oppressed everywhere; and believes that his memory will long survive his death through his extraordinary achievements in the 14 years of his presidency.
