Caracas, Jan 18 (Agencies): The threat of plans to assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is still covert. The possibility is an option for one part of the radical opposition that seeks to end the Bolivarian process, journalist Jose Vicente Rangel stated.

Rangel referred to the constant concealed messages used by social networks, the exploitation of the alleged closure of a television channel, and statements by Venezuelan right-wing representatives abroad.

Such threats against the head of state are the basis for the theories of assassination is a high-risk possibility, even though Chavez' opponents publicly refute them, Rangel noted.
On this issue, Rangel noted the ability of the opposition to hire assassins to execute their conspiracies.

He said groups linked to the military, especially retired officials who were important during the Fourth Republic, are trying to link Venezuelan opposition forces with the national armed forces.
