The indebtedness and subsequent theft of billions of dollars are the main reasons for the electrical crisis in Venezuela, according to the President in charge of the country and the National Assembly (AN) Juan Guaidó.
The accusations were made this Tuesday at the ordinary session of Parliament during the closing of the “Debate on the worsening of the electricity crisis in the country due to the incapacity and corruption of Nicolás Maduro’s regime”.
“Twenty-four credits have been requested in the last 20 years fora total of 36 billion dollars, not satisfied with that they borrowed on PDVSA 28 billion dollars, that’s why there is no (electrical) power, that’s why there is no water in more than 80% of Venezuelan homes.”
Guaidó recalled that in 1999, when they assumed power, Venezuela’s debt was 22 billion dollars, but today it is 132 billion dollars, that is, six times more and that translates into 460 million dollars per Venezuelan.
In his speech, the President in charge ratified that the solution for the electricity crisis, for the Complex Humanitarian Emergency, among other serious problems of the country, goes through the proposal taken to the Kingdom of Norway: separation from post (both Nicolás Maduro and Guaidó) , formation of a plural Government Council and really free presidential elections.
“What is the fear? The solution goes through presidential elections, let’s get resign our posts, don’t be a coward.”
SUPPORT TO ZULIA
From the national Parliament, Guaidó sympathized with the Zulians for the situation they are going through as a result of the electricity crisis, which keeps the state without power for 12 or more continuous hours every day.
“On October 24 we take the streets to defend the Zulians. We take streets to continue fighting for our rights, for our freedom because we are getting closer, do not doubt it. People are the center of debate today and forever.”
The deputy Juan Pablo Guanipa, proposed to make a march of Zulainos in Caracas on October 24, the day of the birth of Rafael Urdaneta, hero of Independence.
