As a reminder, the constitutional council following an appeal by the parliamentary bloc of the Lebanese Forces had suspended the decision to grant an advance of 200 million dollars in advance to the EDL in order to finance the purchases of fuel oil necessary for the operation of public electricity production plants.

The participants stressed that the top priority is to find the necessary financing to purchase fuel oil.

Total production could even drop below 900 megawatts
