Brazil President to Remain Hospitalized after Surgery

BRASILIA Ė Brazilís President Michel Temer, who underwent surgery this week due to a urinary problem, will remain hospitalized temporarily, officials said Thursday.

Temer has recovered well after an operation on Wednesday to correct a urinary difficulty and urethral stricture (a narrowing of the urethra) but will need to stay in the hospital at least until Friday, the presidentís office said.

The medical decision forced Temer to cancel his Thursday schedule, which had included the swearing-in of Carlos Marun as his new government secretary (the presidentís top congressional liaison).

That ceremony has been postponed until next week.

The 77-year-old conservative head of state has suffered different health problems in recent months that have forced him to suspend official activities and twice cancel a visit to Brazil by Bolivian President Evo Morales.

He eventually met with that leftist leader on Dec. 5 in Brasilia.

In October, Temer underwent a prostate operation to correct a urinary obstruction and later had an angioplasty to widen three obstructed coronary arteries.
