Unionized transport sector employees plan to strike nationwide 05:00 Feb. 2-Feb. 4. The strike is likely to impact ground transport, including public transportation, taxis, and freight services. Participants are advocating for better working conditions in compliance with an agreement previously made with the prime minister in 2021. While exact protest locations have not been provided, they will likely materialize near major transport hubs, public squares, government buildings. Hundreds of individuals could attend the demonstrations nationwide.

The work stoppage will probably result in increased demand for alternative modes of transport.
