CARACAS - Venezuela's cancer-stricken leader Hugo Chavez said he will return to Cuba on Saturday for a fourth and probably last round of chemotherapy, vowing to be recovered and fit for a tough re-election campaign next year.

"I will go to Cuba this afternoon," the 57-year-old Chavez, dressed in an olive green military uniform, said in a speech televised from Caracas. "Early tomorrow I will start the fourth round of chemotherapy, which will most likely be the last."

Chavez, who had the constitution changed to allow perpetual presidential re-elections, said he expected to return to Venezuela by the middle of the week after about five days of treatment.
