The Governor of the Central Bank of Libya (CBL), Saddik Al-Kabir, accused Thursday the Chairman of the Presidential Council, Fayez Al-Sarraj, of being responsible for delays in implementation of the General Electricity Company’s plans to solve outages.

In a letter addressed to Al-Sarraj, Al-Kabir denied accusations against the bank's failure to facilitate the work of the Electricity Company and hindering it from addressing the electricity crisis in the country.

He emphasized the bank's readiness to cooperate with the company and the responsible bodies in order to resolve the electricity crisis, noting that electricity is a key tool for developing the national economy and to implement new development projects in the coming period.
