The citizens of Rebiana, an area 1,700 kilometres southeast of Tripoli, expressed their protest against the power cuts which have plagued their area for more than six months.

In a statement, the citizens held the electricity company fully responsible for its inaction and indifference towards the suffering in the region, which has caused great damage to agriculture and medical supplies, making daily life in the region extremely difficult.

The statement called on the Government of National Acord (GNA), along with the parallel government in the east of the country, to intervene urgently to form a committee, which will conduct a full and transparent investigation into the causes of the power outages within the region.
