Fico also wants to firm state’s position in SE
Prime Minister reiterated that the government would not help Enel to sell its 66-percent stake in the power utility Slovenske Elektaren in any case. According to Robert Fico, Italian investor may expect the state to obstruct this sale until Mochovce NPP is completed.
The Slovak government will be interested in strengthening its position in the power utility Slovenske Elektrarne (SE), Prime Minister Robert Fico confirmed on HN Club Forum held on Monday. If there is an opportunity to acquire the majority in the company, not only in regard to the stake, but also the real management of the company and if reasonable conditions are agreed, the state will express a huge interest. He sent an indirect message to other potential candidates that they cannot expect any state help in case they eventually enter the company.
