Venezuelan Information Minister Jorge Rodriguez said that the government would suspend the work of schools and businesses on Monday due to continued power cuts.
"On orders from the Venezuelan government, work in schools will be suspended and citizens will be given leave from work on Monday (March 11th)," Rodriguez was quoted as saying by Sputnik in an interview with Rodriguez.
Twenty-three provinces in Venezuela have been hit by a power cut since last Thursday, when the National Electricity Company announced that the state of darkness was caused by an accident at the Simon Bolivar hydroelectric plant. The National Electricity Corporation described the incident as a sabotage act and was part of an energy war against Venezuela, while President Nicholas Maduro is accused by the United States of involvement in sabotage.
