Miqati Tweets: I'm relieved Lebanon Will Gradually Get Power 24/7
Prime Minister Najib Miqati has said that the cabinet made a very important achievement for the state and the citizen to gradually provide 24 hour electricity to the country.
“I'm relieved: Lebanon will gradually get Power 24/7. Objective: better public utilities & services at lower prices,” he tweeted on Wednesday after the government approved the controversial electricity project.
In remarks to As Safir daily published Thursday, Miqati said: “The cabinet made a major achievement for the state and the citizen as it agreed on all the articles of the project.”
“Everyone came out (from the session) comfortable, particularly that the council of ministers will oversee (the implementation of) all the aspects of the project,” he said.
Asked if parliament would endorse it, the premier said: “The parliament is its own master. We will propose the project to the legislature and defend it in all its aspects.”
“We don’t mind if it (parliament) wants to add any logical information to any item,” he told As Safir.
“As long as we introduced all the necessary constraints, I don’t think that the MPs would have a big problem” with the project, he said.
