Efforts to privatize the company have failed

The national electricity company, Senelec, continues to face financial difficulties because of technical failures, low end-user prices and the higher price of oil. But efforts to privatize the company have failed. “Initially, in 1999, the State sold 34% of the company's capital to a consortium made up of Hydro-Quebec and Elyo. However, in 2000 the Government cancelled the contract because of continuous power cuts. It then launched a call for tenders for the sale of 51% of the capital in 2001, which failed.” [Global Energy Research, 11 December 2016]

The result of this situation is ‘the unequivocal observation of the generalized insufficiency, in quantity and quality, of certified seeds produced for all plant species for several years,’ according to Matar Mour Seck.”
