Electricité Du Liban (EDL) part-timers set up on Thursday tents inside the company's premises in line with the press conference of EDL General Director Kamal Hayek, National News Agency correspondent reported. Responding to a question about setting up tents by part-timers, Hayek said, "Setting up tents is rejected; and the Lebanese administration has many bases and steps which can be adopted to object administrative decisions." He hoped that the protesters would remove the tents and resort to their rights in using appropriate objection bases. Hayek confirmed, "Setting up tents is not a civilized way and will not lead to the desired outcome."
