Organised Labour has given the government a one-week ultimatum to withdraw the value added tax (VAT) on electricity for residential customers.

The labour unions have said the implementation of the VAT on residential customers would worsen the plight of already burdened power consumers since the cost of electricity would go up by 15 per cent.

“Our message to government is very simple – we cannot pay VAT on electricity; we will not pay it today; we will not pay it tomorrow,” he stressed.
