Venezuela's Chavez will run for re-election in 2012

CARACAS, July 24 (Reuters) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez will seek another six-term in an election next year despite recovering from cancer surgery, he said in an interview with state newspaper Correo del Orinoco published on Sunday.

The 56-year-old socialist leader returned to Venezuela late on Saturday a week after leaving for chemotherapy in Cuba, saying no malignant cells were found and that he was arriving home in better health than when he left. (Reporting by Daniel Wallis; Editing by Doina Chiacu)
