A group calling itself ‘Raise Your Voice’ hacked on Saturday the official website for the Presidency of the Council of Ministers (pcm.gov.lb) and the website of Administrative Reform and Development (omsar.gov.lb), demanding the government to halt electricity rationing during the summer.
“When will we have electricity?” the group asked on the front page.
In April, RYV hacked around 15 Lebanese government websites demanding an improvement in living standards.
The hackers posted a caricature on the home page of the premiership’s website depicting a skinny man, representing the people, feeding a fat man described as the government, on its right a photo of bread and on the left a photo of a candle.
The group wrote under the caricature: “Do you ministers have electricity? Why does everything have fall on the shoulders of the people?”
“Enough! Get us the electricity back!” the group said.
RYV previously vowed to continue hacking the government sites until the Lebanese people earn the rights they are asking for and until living standards are improved.
Lebanon’s electricity crisis has widened at the beginning of the summer as several areas are suffering from major blackouts.
The lingering electricity crisis has become a burden on citizens after shortages at its power plants whose maximum capacity is less than 1,500 megawatts.
The country’s actual need exceeds 2,300 megawatts.
