Kirkuk demands the payment of the dues of an Iranian company to supply it with electricity and invites Al-Kazemi to visit it
Al-Salihi said in a joint press conference held today with the governor of Kirkuk, Rakan Saeed al-Jubouri, that "Kirkuk is equipped with the fewest hours of the national electricity network, unlike the rest of the provinces."
He added that "the problems facing the citizen in Kirkuk are diverse, one day of petrol and one day of electricity," noting that the Iranian company has concluded since 2011 the contract to supply Kirkuk with 300 megawatts of energy, and there is only a small amount left to complete the project, but the Council of Ministers refuses to spend it for political purposes.
Al-Salihi, who is the head of the Turkmen bloc in the Iraqi parliament, continued by saying that just as Al-Kazemi visited Mosul, he is supposed to visit Kirkuk as well.
And he added, "I see that the suffering of Kirkuk does not reach the Prime Minister," addressing Al-Kazemi by saying, "Oh, Mr. Prime Minister, Kirkuk is an important Iraqi situation, so preserve it."
