Geagea slams Change and Reform bloc over electricity issue

Lebanese Forces leader Samir Geagea addressed the electricity issue and slammed the Change and Reform bloc, saying the latter wanted decisions made its way or no electricity would be generated, according to a statement issued by Geagea’s press office on Monday.

Asked if Prime Minister Najib Mikati’s cabinet may collapse due to the electricity issue, Geagea asked: “Is there a cabinet to collapse in the first place?”

The issue of electricity has sparked controversy, especially since Mikati had reservations over Energy Minister Gebran Bassil’s proposal to rent power-generating ships. 

The statement also said that the LF leader met with Kataeb bloc MP Sami Gemayel, and quoted Geagea as saying that the meeting with Gemayel was “very good.”
