'Face the people,' De Vido tells electricity companies
Federal Planning and Public Services Minister Julio De Vido urged power suppliers companies Edenor and Edesur to “show up” at the site where citizens are currently staging pickets and protests and inform them when the electricity service will be restored.
“We demand a different attitude from companies. They have to be present in the streets and tell (people) when they will give them back the service,” De Vido warned after visiting a customer service center that the federal government has set up to deal with users’ continuing claims, along with Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich
“Face people is what they have to do,” the minister affirmed adding his office “has done the best” to assist hundreds of Argentineans who have been left in the dark over the past days as a suffocating heat wave continues to hit the country.
Julio De Vido explained the Cristina Fernández de Kirchner administration will anounce the sanctions on Edenor and Edesur during "next week, when the high temperatures are over".
