CARACAS - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said on Wednesday he will undergo a second round of chemotherapy in the coming days to treat a cancer that has forced him to slow his pace before a 2012 re-election bid.

Chavez' medical team will set the precise date for the next session after a medical evaluation over the next few hours, the charismatic former soldier told state television in an early morning telephone call.

Sounding energetic and jovial, the 57-year-old socialist leader said he was "preparing now for a new stage."

"We're approaching the days of the second dose (of chemotherapy) and there could be a need for a third and a fourth," he said.
