POLITICIANS across the Balearics are demanding to know why an emergency back-up system did not kick into action when the region was blacked out by power cuts yesterday.

A leading minister accused the electricity company of “negligence,” and called for sanctions against power supplier Gesa.
Interior ministry chief Maria Angeles Lecinena said she wanted to know the “exact” reasons why a back-up system was not operational after the double fault halted supplies from Alcudia's Es Murterar power station at 12.06 pm until later into the afternoon.

She said it was a grave incident and demanded to know why emergency procedures were not activated.
