Khalil criticizes Zahrani power barges
Amal Movement MPs staged a sit-in in front of the Zahrani power plant, asking for an end to deals bringing power barges in the country.
Taking the word, MP Ali Hassan Khalil said that "this sit-in comes to reassure our commitment to granting the people of Southern Lebanon their right to receive the amount of electricity that meets their needs."
He added that Amal Movement demanded to establish permanent power plants that would provide electricity for all of Lebanon and rejected the extension of power ships for the next three years.
The Minister pointed out that the Turkish power ship that arrived to Lebanon was supposed to provide Lebanon with electricity free of charge for three months, where a decision was made that opposed what was agreed upon by all parties.
