The Minister of Finance Anas Al-Saleh has reiterated that government has no intention to hurt the lowincome earners by removing subsidies on fuel, electricity and water. He affirmed that the removal of subsidies will not affect citizens and expatriates negatively, restating the issue has yet to be concluded, as the proposal is still under review.

Speaking about the issue, the Minister of Electricity and Water Abdulaziz Al-Ibrahim corroborated what the finance minister said. He disclosed that the decision to raise the electricity and water bill has not been issued, indicating the step the government has taken until now is just a regular study to enable citizens and expatriate control their consumption levels.
