In this oil-rich country, most Iraqi cities do not have a source of electric power around the clock, and power cuts have become part of the daily life of Iraqis, while the matter is getting worse with the electricity crisis that burdens the people who are actually burdened with corruption, so what is the story of the electricity absent from Iraq?
The electricity transmission network in Iraq loses between 40 to 50 percent of its energy, and this represents the difference between what it produces of electricity and what is provided to citizens of electricity. This deficiency is one of the highest in the world.
The government of Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi pledged to work to solve the electricity crisis in promises that the Iraqis have repeatedly heard every summer and winter, but it seems that those in charge of managing the country are doing nothing on the ground in oil-rich Iraq.
In December last year, a parliamentary committee set up to investigate the power outage crisis said it had spent $81 billion (68 billion euros) on Iraq's electricity sector since 2005.
It did not improve, and all the ministers of electricity in all governments stated that it would improve, but to no avail.
Where is the solution?
The solution lies in bringing in solid companies such as Siemens, Germany, or any company that is trusted with its work, and benefit from the Iraqi gas associated with oil without wasting it, and all this will not happen.
The Ministry of Electricity chooses the easiest way to evade its failures and failure to provide electricity to citizens by using the Iranian gas peg, which confirms the contract concluded between the two governments that the quantity exported to Iraq decreases during the severe cold period in Iran and it is natural (the priority for their people) and the government had to find alternatives in investing gas Burning oil.
The official position does not dare to tell the truth and takes advantage of the naivety of some people and accuses Iran of preventing gas from being sent to Iraq due to non-payment of dues.
The electricity puzzle will not be solved, the Iraqis will continue to suffer, and the governments have failed to find alternatives to this intractable problem, which has become a concern for the people in all seasons.
