The Venezuelan government declared that the recent attack on the electrical system was strong and that the authorities are investigating its capacity to cause damage.
The President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, announced on Sunday that a new plan was about to be implemented for 30 days in order to fight against the electric war executed against the population.
In a television address, the Venezuelan government explained: "we have been working on this serious situation, the coup went directly to the electric power generation system and affected its transmission capacity throughout the country."
"I have approved a 30-day plan to go to a regime of rational distribution of electricity, which allows balancing the generation process, secure transmission, service, and consumption throughout the country," he said.
The Venezuelan government asserted that the recent attack on the electrical system was stronger this time and that the authorities were investigating its capacity to cause damage.
"We are investigating infiltration elements within the electric supply that may be serving as moles to cause damage from the inside," he said.
