Egypt: Power Outages Cause Outrage
Egypt: Power Outages Cause Outrage
Power Outages Cause Outrage

Frustrations have reached a boiling point in Egypt due to the government’s recent decision to cut power to various areas in order to lighten the load on the electric grid. National Association for Consumer Protection President Zeinab Awadallah believes citizens should have the right to sue the government. Adwallah complains that, “…locally-produced energy is exported to the detriment of domestic demand” and that “Egypt’s power stations had been neglected…”. Other Egyptian citizens are taking a more direct approach, with several opposition groups staging a protest in the Matareya district of Cairo protesting the electricity outages as well as increases in food prices.
