Rather than closing public baths to rationalize water, Socialist Party MP Majida Chahid proposes setting the capacity of these establishments or determining the quantity of water to be used per client.
In an oral question on the decision to partially close hammams taken by the Ministry of the Interior to rationalize water, Chahid insisted on the negative impacts of this decision on the living conditions of workers in this sector, asking the government whether support measures are planned for these professionals.

The MP also noted that the measure will not rationalize water, as these public baths will experience high traffic during the days they are open and will therefore use more water to satisfy their customers. For greater efficiency, Chahid recommends instead setting the capacity of these establishments or determining the quantity of water to use for a client.
