— President Hugo Chavez’s elder brother Adan said he will visit the Venezuelan leader in Cuba, where he is recovering after cancer surgery.

Venezuelan government newspaper Correo del Orinoco reported on Adan Chavez’s announcement, saying he planned to travel to Havana on Tuesday afternoon.

It also said that the president’s father, Hugo de los Reyes Chavez, has announced plans to travel to Havana. The state newspaper said Chavez’s mother might go with him, though that had not been confirmed.

Adan Chavez was re-elected governor in the president’s home state of Barinas over the weekend.

Government officials say the president has been accompanied in Cuba by his four children and a son-in-law since undergoing surgery for an undisclosed type of pelvic cancer Dec. 11. The government has said Chavez suffered complications during the operation but that he has been recovering.

Chavez has yet to speak publicly since the surgery, which was his fourth cancer-related operation since June 2011.
