Baghdad/ Iraq TradeLink: Iraqi Electricity Ministry's spokesman Mus'ab al-Mudaris disclosed that Iraq needs 22.000 M/W of electricity to end the crisis in the country.
He added that the available energy, at the present time, is only 14.000 M/W.
Iraq tried to privatize the electricity sector in some Baghdad areas, but all other provinces rejected this method.
"The privatization of electricity in Baghdad saved 40% of the wasted electricity", he confirmed.
The ministry started the privatization project in 2015.
