Venezuela's Chavez says no more cancer cells found

CARACAS - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said on Saturday doctors have found no more malignant cells in his body after cancer surgery but he delegated some powers just hours before a planned trip back to Cuba for chemotherapy.
Chavez resisted calls from the opposition to temporarily hand over the presidency of the OPEC-member South American nation to Vice President Elias Jaua during his absence. Instead, he gave Jaua and Finance Minister Jorge Giordani powers that include budgetary matters.
