Venezuela's socialist government on Monday eased a nationwide energy-saving program, bringing to an end a controversial two-day work week since April for nearly 3 million public sector workers.

Electricity Minister Luis Motta said that thanks to rising waters at the Guri reservoir, which supplies two-thirds of the OPEC nation's electricity, state workers would return to work until 1 p.m. on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
