Venezuela’s government has imposed a two-day working week for public sector workers as a temporary measure to help it overcome a serious energy crisis.

Venezuela is facing a major drought, which has dramatically reduced water levels at its main hydroelectric dam.

Vice-President Aristobulo Isturiz announced that civil servants should turn up for work only on Mondays and Tuesdays until the crisis was over. But the opposition has accused the government of mismanaging the crisis.
