The prices for the low-voltage electricity used in homes and commercial enterprises will increase by 19 per cent and for the high-voltage electricity used in heavy industry by 10 per cent, Shaker said.

In recent years, the government of President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi has introduced cuts to energy subsidies as part of austerity measures linked to a 12-billion-dollar bailout from the International Monetary Fund.

Egypt hiked the electricity prices by an average of 26 per cent in the fiscal year 2018-19.
