Iraq minister outlines problems behind electricity woes

Iraqi protesters wave national flags and shout slogans during a demonstration against corruption and abysmal utility services in Baghdad's Tahrir Square on August 28, 2015Iraq’s electricity minister outlined to parliament Saturday a slew of problems that have contributed to abysmal power services, which have sparked widespread public anger and protests. Qassem al-Fahdawi, who was being quizzed in parliament on Iraq’s electricity woes since he took office last year, criticised his predecessors for “focusing almost exclusively on production” at the expense of developing the distribution network to raise output.
