Chavez vows to speed socialist drive in Venezuela

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is vowing to accelerate his drive for socialism in Venezuela as he recovers from surgery to remove a cancerous tumor.
Chavez says opponents should not expect him to relinquish power. He says the only transition Venezuelans should expect is one away from capitalism and toward socialism.
The comments come in a phone call to university students that was broadcast live on state TV Tuesday.
Chavez has made several live public appearances while recovering from surgery. He has also been actively posting messages on Twitter and has been shown on television leading a Cabinet meeting and visiting with relatives.
