No electricity until the tariff is increased

According to Energy Minister Walid Fayyad, increasing the tariff on the “state electricity” bill is the solution for the Lebanese people to enjoy electricity.
How did the citizen respond to his Excellency?

However, His Excellency neglected the basic requirement of the Fund, which is to carry out reforms and appoint the regulatory body for the Electricité du Liban.
Let us assume for the sake of argument that the Minister of Energy is right to increase the tariff, but according to what price and how he will reconcile between the citizen who pays his bill and the one who does not pay it.
The successive ministers in this ministry did not provide a session without asking for an advance for electricity, and they were able to obtain it. As for the result, there is no electricity.

So, your excellency, will the citizens enjoy electricity?

Therefore, citizens, appreciate the frankness of the Minister of Energy, and search for electricity sources by yourself, because this ministry has changed its name since 2010 and became the Ministry of Deals and Brokerages.
