MP Majid Moussa has called on Minister of Electricity and Water Ahmed Al-Jassar to quickly deal with electricity supply disruptions in a number of residential areas. “It is unacceptable that citizens and their families suffer from repeated power outages, particularly this time when Ramadan coincided with the summer season. All those behind the repeated power outages must be held liable, considering the previous minister was notified about the problem,” he added.
He went on to say the minister should form an inquiry commission whose members are from outside the ministry in order to determine the actual cause of the repeated power outages. He stressed the lawmakers will take a firm stand regarding the issue in the next legislative round if the problem is not solved by then.
