MK Ariel: Electricity Rationing Inconceivable


Chairman Uri Ariel of the State Control Committee said, Thursday evening, that he will convene an urgent meeting of the committee to discuss the power outages and "situation orange" under which  the Israel Electric Company operated on Thursday.

Ariel said, "It is inconceivable in the 21st century that Israel is operating a pattern of austerity in electricity, as in the last of the third world countries. This is a height of a chain of failures in recent years and they must be examined."
