The Mayor of Abu Salim Municipality, Abdul-Rahman al-Hamidi, has called for an equal distribution of load shedding hours among the municipalities.

Al-Hamidi called via the municipality's official Facebook page on Wednesday, on the state's power grid (GECOL), to name the areas refusing to take their share from the load shedding process.

"The GECOL needs to concrete efforts to raise the production capacity of the generation stations, conduct maintenance operations, and implement emergency projects to face the supply shortage," al-Hamidi said.

Abu Salim mayor also urged the GECOL to work to ensure that the electricity needs of Tripoli are met, taking into consideration the population growth, also to accelerate the maintenance work of the network damaged during the aggression on Tripoli.
