“Unfortunately these are the people who should have made serious decisions about the energy in the place and it appears that, to say the least, they lack such ability and in in any case, their actions do not serve the public interest”, the unions argue in their announcement, characterizing their entire attitude as “destructive for the place”.
As they state “because we are in a very difficult period and the hours we spend on energy are dramatic with serious cost implications for citizens, the economy and the well-being of the country, it is unacceptable for us to handle such serious issues with people with such attitudes” .
They also note that “it would be good for the Minister of Energy to be informed by the official, who cut the positions of the supplementary budget of the EAC, which prevents the EAC from operating to APE demanding the deactivation of contractual production (i.e. Dekelia) and about what he implies when he spreads, in an official meeting, that you will see what will happen to EAC Networks after the elections!”
Concluding, the guilds note that the Board of Directors is called. of the EAC to rise to the occasion and to support and implement its decisions and that it would be good if the President of the Republic was also informed about who is undermining the decisions of the Council of Ministers.
