HAVANA.- He Cuban regime publicly acknowledged the continuity of the blackouts that affect the population, pointing out that, although they hope to reduce their duration, they will not be able to eliminate them completely due to the discrepancy between the demand and supply of electrical energy.

In the program “From the Presidency”, broadcast through social networks, the designated ruler Miguel Díaz-Canel addressed the issue, accompanied by directors of the Electrical Union, the state entity responsible for the generation and distribution of electricity in the country. Díaz-Canel expressed his commitment to working to mitigate the extension of power outages, which have generated unrest among the population and have been a triggering factor for recent street protests.

The economic crisis facing Cuba, aggravated by the COVID-19 pandemic, has contributed to the deterioration of electrical infrastructure. The application of a monetary reform and fuel shortages have also influenced the current situation.

The director of the National Energy Union, Alfredo López, admitted the difficulties in maintaining the electricity supply, pointing out problems in infrastructure, the acquisition of spare parts and the availability of fuel.

This announcement occurs in a context of high temperatures, typical of the summer season on the island, which increases the demand for electricity and aggravates the situation of power outages. In addition, scheduled block cuts have been implemented as a measure to manage supply amid the shortage.

The population, for its part, continues to face difficulties in accessing food, medicine and other basic resources, which generates a climate of discontent and protest.
