Name That Politician!

He is an extremely wealthy man.

Despite a referendum to uphold term limits, he has decided to try to run again anyway.

He has asserted that the attempted change to term limits merely gives politicians the right to run again, and that it doesn't guarantee re-election.

He was warned that the citizens will lose much of what they have gained should he not be re-elected.

His opponents claim that he has manipulated the numbers to make himself look good.

He is trying to push through a law to extend terms limits quickly before his numbers deteriorate.

He has supported another look at the term limits law after his own term has run out.

Who is he?

A friend of Fidel Castro and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

I'm pretty sure Chavez failed to overturn term limits, though. It takes a real dictator to accomplish that, apparently.
