Changes in leftist politics in Latin America related to health and death are the central themes in this week's edition of Latin Pulse. The program provides an update on the status of the Sandinista party (the FSLN) in Nicaragua after the death of Tomas Borge. And with the failing health of President Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, what is in store for that country during this crucial election year? The program also deals with political fallout from the resurgence of the Shining Path guerrillas in Peru.
