The deputies of the National Assembly discussed during the ordinary session on Tuesday about the worsening of the electricity crisis throughout the national territory and held Nicolas Maduro’s regime responsible for his incapacity and corruption.
Deputy Angel Torres opened the debate by pointing to the regime of having destroyed the Raúl Leoni dam, “which works at less than 50% of its capacity. In total 40,000 million dollars were embezzled”, said the parliamentarian.
In this regard, Torres urged the regime to conduct censuses to search for corrupt officials and not to locate the homes of Venezuelans who have had to flee the country. “No activity is known in several projects located throughout the country, the culmination of large power plants was paralyzed, money was stolen by Motta Dominguez and his compadres, the transformers are in Cuba and Nicaragua.”
“As of today, more than 100 deceased people have been registered in the Venezuelan health system due to lack of electricity”, he said.
Meanwhile, Deputy Melva Paredes, mentioned the crisis on the island of Coche, where children and older adults are suffering from serious diseases that are aggravated by the electrical crisis. “Here we are talking about a time bomb that the island of Coche can represent for Venezuela. There is no gas, they have to cook with firewood, and the worst part is that there are no refrigerators so that fishermen can refrigerate their products, which is their main source of income”.
Faced with this situation that extends throughout the country, assemblyman Julio César Reyes recalled that “years after years we have seen the regime lie about the energy crisis, always holding third parties accountable without admitting their own responsibility, but we have never heard them explain the whys of the electric chaos.”
CORRUPTION OF THE DICTATORSHIP
Deputy Piero Maroun said that the serious electrical crisis “has affected a very small group that is close Maduro, accomplices of this misfortune, and in the rest of the country we are the ones who suffer the greatest cynicism, the country is on the one hand begs for food, medicine, and they go the other way.”
In this sense, the parliamentarian José Prat agreed that the corruption of the dictatorship was responsible for destroying the national electrical system. “The protocols were not executed in years of drought, then corruption came importing power plants that did not work.”
Another to agree on this point was the deputy Héctor Vargas. “In Maracaibo thermoelectric plants do not work because everything is corruption, on the East Coast of the Lake we also suffer, Maduro for what it has served is to expropriate.”
