Al-Kazemi stressed that the previous governments did not diversify the sources of gas import and adopted one source, which led to a deterioration in the production of electrical energy in the event of a shortage or halt in gas imports, while the current government sought to sign several giant contracts to invest gas in various oil fields for the purpose of developing a final and national solution. to this problem over the next few years.

2- Follow-up to ensure the distribution of the prescribed quotas for citizens of white oil and the provision of additional quantities at the outlets.
