Sadr calls on lawmakers to pay on-field trips over power outages
Leader of Sadrist Movement Muqtada al-Sadr called on the lawmakers to investigate in the power outages, Sadr's spokesman Jaafar al-Musawi said Saturday. 

Muqtada al-Sadr urged Al Ahrar bloc to undertake field trips to the electric power plants in Iraq and contribute to solve the electric problem.

Earlier, Muqtada al-Sadr called for referring Minister of Electricity Qasim Al-Fahadawi to the prosecution. Sadr reiterated that Fahadawi must be dismissed if any damage was caused by his negligence.

This comes as the Iraqi cities are suffering from recurrent blackouts as the temperature reached more than 50 degrees Celsius.  

Iraq Interior Minister Qasim al-Araji has promised to fix the electricity problems and increasing the electricity grids for the citizens but these promises have not been fulfilled.
