The Head of the Libyan Presidential Council Fayez Al-Sarraj asked Tuesday the new board of directors of the General Electricity Company of Libya (GECOL) to devise a new plan to resolve the issues behind the long-hour power outages amid offers of assistance in this sector by friend countries.

The GECOL board of directors took the oath, for starting their new official jobs, at the meeting Tuesday morning and then discussed the general status of the electricity network in Libya and its production capacity, in addition to ways to reduce deficit, repair infrastructure and end the entanglements at the GECOL facilities to allow its projects to restart.

Al-Sarraj asked the board of directors to speed up work at GECOL and to take measures that allow companies working on different projects in Libya to resume their operations.

The General Assembly of GECOL elected a new board of directors last Sunday and before that, last week; it approved 2020 budget with the aim of enhanced services and more efficient work.
