MANILA, Philippines — Power plants nationwide were in normal operation on Monday during the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections, despite supply interruptions and technical issues in some areas.

“As of October 30, 2023 at 1100H, all power generation plants are in NORMAL OPERATION,” the DOE said in a report posted on its Facebook account.
