34% of Egyptians Pleased with Electricity, Water Services – Poll

Thirty four percent of Egyptians are satisfied with the state services, notably in water and electricity sectors, a new opinion poll has announced.

The Egyptian Center for Public Opinion Research (Baseera)’s poll commissioned by the leading economic magazine Amwal Al Ghad found that 34 percent of voters said they are ‘pleased’ with water and electricity services.

Their votes come in the light of the government’s strategy to improve the services, notably in witnessing lesser electricity cuts which happened only during summer.

This poll is considered to be the first and the biggest during 2014 for the country’s economic sectors, containing a survey group consisting 550 persons of 18 years and older.

On the other hand, 24 percent of the Egyptians are not satisfied, citing deterioration in services, including water and electricity. This percentage also assumed that the government is aware of the facilities needing enhancement, saying its respond is underway, but at a snail’s pace.
