A Venezuelan government TV channel says President Hugo Chavez is expected to seek approval from lawmakers to return to Cuba for a new round of cancer treatment.
The official channel of the National Assembly says on its website that lawmakers plan to take up tomorrow Chavez's request to travel to Cuba for his third phase of chemotherapy.
Chavez said in a newspaper column published on Sunday that he was preparing for a "possible" new round of chemotherapy and that all of his hair has fallen out as a result of the treatment.
In his column, Chavez also saluted a group of young people in the Dominican Republic who shaved their heads in solidarity. State media reported that six of the Dominicans arrived on Saturday night to meet with Chavez.
