As the electricity service returns to the country, the government is working on "the phase of total resizing of the National Electric System."

Minister of Communication and Tourism Jorge Rodriguez gave a press conference Wednesday showing evidence related to the recent attacks on the national electricity system (SEN) which he said were intended to cause chaos by leaving the Venezuelan people without electricity for weeks.

"In the last two years, the Venezuelan fascist opposition has perpetrated more than 250 attacks on the National Electric System," said Rodriguez adding that such attacks have been foiled by the Venezuelan government on different occasions.

While the attack intended to leave the country with no electricity for weeks, the minister said that his government has managed to resolve the issue within days. "In almost all the national territory, at this moment, there is electricity, let's take care of it! Help us help them! Save electricity!"

He further urged the Venezuelan people to "save electricity and keep our willingness and decision to be free, to be sovereign, to be independent."

As the electricity service returns to the country, the government is working on "the phase of total resizing of the National Electric System."
