MP and Popular Nasserite Organization leader Osama Saad called for Lebanese communities to unite against the system of political looting and corruption, especially in the energy sector, in a meeting with journalists Saturday.Saad said he and other southerners had been depending on a Turkish power barge to provide them with a few extra hours of electricity a day. The barge, called the Esra Sultan, was originally set to dock in Zahrani but was blocked by the Amal Movement, which argued that it would have remained in the area longer than the three summer months Cabinet had agreed to, delayed the construction of a fixed power plant and polluted the environment.
