CAIRO – 25 June 2024: President Abdel Fatah El-Sisi instructed the government to take immediate measures to reduce duration of electricity cuts and achieve fair distribution of them among different neighborhoods, while working on ending the crisis altogether, high-profile source told Extra News Tuesday.


Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouli will hold on Tuesday a meeting aimed at issuing key decisions on the electricity crisis, a governmental source told Extra News.


The ministries of electricity and petroleum had announced Monday that the daily extra hour of power-saving electricity cuts would persist until the end of the week as it was planned to take place for just two days, Sunday and Monday.


The Cabinet announced in January that power load reduction would be carried out as the electricity would be cut for two hours between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. daily and the timings for each neighborhood would be declared.
