Iraq's parliamentary oil and gas committee has warned of unmasking a number of politicians who put pressure on the Ministry of Electricity recently to let incompetent Turkish companies gain electricity contracts.
Iraq suffers from a severe shortage of electric power and still the national electricity network is not able to supply electricity for more than a few hours per day.
Committee member Uday Awad said: "There are unsuccessful Turkish companies promoted by some Iraqi politicians who have visited Turkey for the purpose of granting contracts in the electricity field.
"These companies are small businesses that do not have similar experience and did not receive a large contract in the past, which is sparking discontent inside the Ministry of Electricity."
Awad stressed that he has the names of the politicians who have put pressure on the ministry to grant contracts to Turkish companies in the electricity sector. He threatened to announce their names soon.
The House of Representatives is seeking to question the Minister of Electricity Karim Aftan on the back of the current low rates of electricity production in the country.
