Shura Council MPs blame Qandil Cabinet for fuel shortage

Shura Council MPs blame Qandil Cabinet for fuel shortage | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Shura Council MPs slammed Prime Minister Hesham Qandil and his Cabinet over diesel fuel shortages and lackluster Sinai development during Tuesday’s session.

Liberal Wafd Party MP Mohamed Hanafy demanded Qandil and the petroleum minister be called before the council for not doing enough to avert the fuel crisis.

He also said Qandil has no charisma.

But others said a charming personality was not what the country needs to move forward.

“Charisma would not solve the problem,” responded council speaker Ahmed Fahmy, adding that he plans to summon Qandil and any necessary ministers.

Egypt to delay fuel subsidy rationing

Egypt to delay fuel subsidy rationing | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Egypt-actus's insight:

(Reuters, via Aswat Masriya) - Egypt's government will delay by up to three months a rationing of subsidised fuel initially set for April as part of austerity measures to secure a $4.8 billion loan from the IMF, its oil minister said on Tuesday.

The quotas, to be implemented through a system of smart cards allowing drivers a limited amount of subsidised fuel, were due to start in April, just as the country is set to hold parliamentary elections.

"The usage of smart cards for petroleum products will be implemented in the period between April and July," Minister of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Osama Kamal told reporters on the sidelines of an industry event.

The Islamist-led administration that took office in July vowed to push through a reform of subsidies, which swallow as much as a quarter of the state budget, to lower its deficit but is reluctant to hurt voters.

It eliminated subsidies on 95-octane gasoline, the highest grade available, late last year, prompting many motorists to switch to subsidised lower-octane fuel.

Égypte: le pain et le gaz rationnés

L'Egypte  prévoit d'introduire des cartes de rationnement du pain et du gaz domestique dont les prix sont subventionnés dans un délai de deux mois, a annoncé le ministre égyptien de l'Approvisionnement, aujourd'hui.
Bassem Ouda a précisé à l'agence de presse officielle Mena, que le gouvernement va mettre en oeuvre cette mesure à titre expérimental dans deux villes, Port Fouad et Port Saïd. 
La miche de pain dont le prix est subventionné coûte cinq piastres, soit moins d'un centime de dollar, et l'Etat n'impose aucune limite sur le nombre que peut en acheter chaque Egyptien. 
La question des denrées alimentaires subventionnées est politiquement sensible en Egypte. Une réduction des subventions sur le pain avait provoqué des émeutes en 1977. Le gouvernement a déjà eu recours à des cartes à puce pour imposer un rationnement du carburant des automobiles en juillet dernier.
