Egypt PM says power cuts could ease next week

A power plant seen on October 14, 2003 in Port Said, EgyptEgypt’s prime minister said Wednesday he hoped severe power cuts across the country will be reduced next week, after widespread complaints over unprecedented blackouts of up to eight hours a day. The intermittent power cuts — often lasting for an hour each and up to seven or eight times a day — come during the peak of the blistering summer when temperatures can hover around 40 degrees Celsius (104 Fahrenheit). President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi’s government has been mindful of the potential for unrest. Power cuts in 2013 added to widespread grievances against Islamist president Mohamed Morsi, toppled by the military then led by Sisi after massive protests.
