Chavez remained on his sickbed in Cuba on Thursday while supporters rally in his honour on the day he should have been sworn in for a new six-year term in the South American OPEC nation.

Chavez's formal swearing-in for a new six-year term scheduled for January 10 can be postponed if he is unable to attend due to his battle to recover from cancer surgery, Venezuela's vice president Nicolas Maduro said.
