Energy Minister Ushers in More Electricity Rationing During Summer

Energy Minister Nada Boustani said that the Lebanese should expect more electricity rationing during the summer after her ministry's budget has been reduced in then 2019 draft budget.

“Unfortunately, power outages will increase due to large cuts in the ministry’s budget. I did my best to avoid this, but I failed,” Boustani said in an interview with MTV website.

The minister also announced that the high-voltage power lines in Mansourieh and Ain Saadeh have been fully installed, adding that the area's residents will soon start to notice an improvement in the electricity supply.
