Electricity networks were fully restored across Pakistan as of Tuesday morning, a senior government source said. The malfunction began around 07:30 (0230 GMT) on Monday, a failure related to a cost-cutting measure as Pakistan grapples with an economic crisis. Energy Minister Khurram Dastgir Khan said that power is gradually being restored. Khan said a variation in frequency on the national schedule caused the outage, as power generating units were turned on early Monday morning.
