Member of the “Loyalty to the Resistance” Parliamentary Bloc, MP Hasan Fadlallah, considered in a statement on Sunday, that providing oil and diesel supply to the local market in a sufficient and continuous manner is the duty of the Ministry of Energy, in cooperation with the Central Bank.
He added that “the pursuit of monopolists and those manipulating oil and diesel prices who have caused the crisis, especially in the South region, is the responsibility of the Economy Ministry, the security apparatuses and the judiciary. Hence, these official bodies that possess ample data on those involved are required to set a clear mechanism to deter and take the most severe measures against them.”
The MP stressed that no political or regional considerations or justifications must cover the actions of these manipulators, adding that no one can protect them from the rule of law and people’s anger, for the only affiliation of such individuals is greed and reaping huge profits and gains at the expense of people’s sufferings.
“Since our supervisory role is to hold ministries accountable for their failures, and hold them accountable in parliament, our main preoccupation throughout this period has been to seek remedies that would ease the burdens shouldered by citizens, and we will spare no effort in this respect to secure the basic needs of our people, especially in these dire economic conditions the country is going through,”MP Fadlallah underscored.
