CFK in Venezuela for Chávez's wake
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner cancelled her activities after being informed about the death of her Venezuelan counterpart, Hugo Chávez, and will head to Venezuela tomorrow morning.
Fernández de Kirchner decided to leave tomorrow morning at the Tango 01 presidential plane along with her Uruguayan counterpart José "Pepe" Mujica, Planning Minister Julio de Vido and Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman.
Before leaving, the Head of State ordered three days of mourning.
An official spokeswoman was the one that told leaders and activists about the suspension of the rally the Head of State was going to hold this afternoon.
The president had scheduled video conferences with different provinces in a rally over scholar books that were given to public schools.
Fernández de Kirchner also cancelled a meeting she was going to hold with her Brazilian counterpart Dilma Rousseff on Thursday at El Calafate to debate an economic agenda.
