A NATIONAL day of mourning will be observed today following the death of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Tuesday, Secretary to the Cabinet Dr Roger Luncheon announced yesterday. State facilities would therefore be flying the Golden Arrowhead at half staff, Luncheon said at his weekly post-Cabinet presser at the Office of the President, in Georgetown.
Meanwhile, President Donald Ramotar left yesterday for Caracas, in the company of a delegation, to attend Chavez’s funeral today.
According to the Government Information Agency (GINA), the Guyana Government joined in mourning the loss of the Venezuelan President who held a 14–year reign in the Bolivarian Republic and  was re-elected after the country’s October 2012 elections.
President Ramotar, on Wednesday, signed the Book of Condolence at the Venezuelan Embassy in Georgetown after Prime Minister Samuel Hinds and acting Minister of Foreign Affairs Robeson Benn.
In a message subsequent to the news of Chavez’s death, President Ramotar said he was deeply saddened by the passing of a leader whom he regarded as a great friend of Guyana, and who inspired harmony and solidarity between the two countries.
