Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez has registered to run for a third term in October's elections.
Mr Chavez joined tens of thousands of supporters outside the electoral office in the capital, Caracas, in his biggest rally since he was diagnosed with cancer a year ago.
In apparent good health, he sang and danced in front of the crowd, promising to fight and win.
