network owners get 30% of the amount of the monthly
subscription for a year.

And to measure satisfaction of people on the council
performance on health, services, relief, education and his
capacity to implement such plan.
We had a many exciting results, education was the most
priority for people more than food or medicine.
People are satisfied with the local council in many issues like
services, health, and education.
But they were not satisfied with relief distribution and security
situation, while for electricity distribution some of them
considered that the electricity situation is bad while others said

it is fine but the majority said that the council is not doing his
duty to provide electricity.
About access to electricity we found that some of people have
no access to electricity while big slice of them are getting
electricity by participating in collective generators network for
monthly amount of money, which the considered expensive.
We would like to mention that one of the main obstacles was
that not everyone want to participate in the survey, on security
basis or because they did not saw any benefit of such action.
Recommendations:
We recommend to share these results with the local council to
adopt in his plans and work, further research in the field of
measuring the level of satisfaction with the local council as a
means to monitor its performance in various fields and projects
carried out as well as the development of research in the future
to conduct another survey after implementing the distribution
plan for measuring the level of success and satisfaction among
citizens.
