Though fuel prices were to be amended last night (11) Ministry of Finances say it is unlikely to be amended this month.
According to the pricing formula introduced, which sees the prices of fuel being revised on the 10th of every month, it was due to be amended yesterday as the 10th was a public holiday.
Sources say the pricing committee has decided the fuel price does not need to be revised this month. Therefore according to government reports criticism against the pricing formula at the time of inception were made to paint the government in a bad light.
However, ministry sources say the aim was to implement a policy which can benefit the people immediately and was not taken to cause any issues to the public.
