PMBCB's Melanie Veness: Approaching courts to end municipal corruption by capping their electricity price increases

PMB's organised business CEO Melanie Veness explains why her chamber, in partnership with its NMB counterpart, has drawn a very distinct line in the sand on electricity prices. The chambers are tackling the National Energy Regulator in court in an attempt to force it to rein in profilate municipalities. By getting the courts to forcing the regulator to apply the law in determining electricity oprice increases, muncipalities will no longer be able to milk ratepayers with excessive price increases to cover corruption and inefficiencies.
