Cabinet of Hugo Chavez
The Cabinet of Hugo Chavez is the circle high level ministerial officials and appointees who coordinate the day to day management of the Venezuelan federal government in conjunction with the President of Venezuela. According to the 1999 Venezuelan Constitution, the President can alter his cabinet as he sees fit, and may establish or eliminate federal ministries by presidential decree.
Under Hugo Chavez, cabinet reshuffles have been frequent; thus authoritative lists are difficult to maintain. Several important members of Chavez's inner government circle are not members of the cabinet, nor even members of the executive branch; instead, they are members of the newly created citizen's branch (poder ciudadano).
