CARACAS - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's signature "Alo Presidente" TV show returned to Venezuelan screens on Sunday in the latest milestone of his recovery from cancer at the start of an election year.

The 57-year-old leader has often been on television in recent weeks, looking stronger and boasting a new head of hair as he hosted regional leaders in Caracas last month, then made his first official foreign trip since having surgery in June.

The formal relaunch of the program ("Hello President") - consisting of often hours-long folksy monologues that the socialist leader uses to tell stories, croon songs, order the nationalization of companies and bait foes - will cheer his supporters ahead of the Oct. 7 vote.
