Baghdad - Qusay Mandar
The Iraqis broke their silence about the continuing lack of electric power in the country after the Iranian gas supply was cut off from most of the generation stations, warning of street anger in the event of faltering solutions and the failure to find an alternative before summer, while calling on the government to reveal the fate of billions of dollars spent on raising projects The productivity of the national system has been going on for years, at a time when experts described the continued power outage for citizens as a crime, and the judiciary should move to hold the negligent accountable. Citizens said in conversations yesterday that (this winter witnessed a significant decline in the performance of the national system after a sharp decline in daily processing hours), wondering (where did the billions spent on the system go?), and indicated that (the government is required to search for alternative sources of Iranian gas, which continues to be cut off) During the winter and summer seasons, we warn of the anger of the street in case the prosthetic solutions continue and this dilemma that the people has endured for years are not ended. And experts described, cutting power off the people a crime. The writer and journalist Kazem Al-Miqdadi told (Al-Sharqiya News Channel) that (the government should find an alternative to Iranian gas, especially since the continuation of cutting the electricity supply as he described as a crime against the people). The Ministry of Electricity confirmed its continued need for Iranian gas to operate electric power plants. Ministry spokesman Ahmad al-Abadi said yesterday (we will not be able to leave the electricity supply crisis, unless gas emissions are stabilized), noting that (the need exists for Iranian gas, otherwise the situation will remain as it is). Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi had chaired an emergency meeting, which included the ministers of oil, finance and electricity, and a number of officials, to discuss the electrical energy crisis that the country is currently witnessing, due to the increased loads on the electrical network as a result of the severe cold wave, and because of the shortage of imported gas from the Iranian side.
