The far-right opposition seeks an ‘electrical war’ because they felt lost in the upcoming presidential elections.

On Tuesday, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro called for 30-year prison sentences for the far-right terrorists involved in plans to sabotage the electrical system.

“They are engaged in an electrical war against the power transmission across the country. Several have already been detained and I am asking the Prosecutor’s Office to request 30 years in prison for treason and terrorism,” he said during a political event in a coastal region in the northeast of the country.

The Bolivarian leader explained that the right-wing intended to carry out an attack on the electrical system and then blame his administration for the interruption of the electrical service.

“They represent hatred, harm, and deceit,” Maduro said, reiterating his accusation against those opposition politicians who asked the United States to act against the Venezuelan nation.

The text reads, “‘Cumanacoa will be reborn’ said Nicolas Maduro before thousands of people in the state of Sucre.”

“Although the U.S. sanctions against our economy took away 99 percent of the country’s income, they blamed the Maduro administration for the situation,” he pointed out.

In June, the Venezuelan president had already denounced that the far-right opposition was preparing an “electrical war” because they felt lost in the presidential elections that will be held on July 28.

He then ordered the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB) to implement a 24-hour patrol and surveillance plan at all the system’s facilities.
