Parliament’s Speaker threatens coalition with energy
Andrej Danko emphasized that it is important to take steps to restore order in the company Energeticky a Prumyslovy Holding (EPH).
Parliament’s Speaker Andrej Danko said in the program In Politics broadcast by the TV channel TA3 in connection with high energy prices that although Prime Minister Robert Fico had torn the energy bill at the press conference, Danko would like to tear the former head of the Regulatory Office for Network Industries, Jozef Holjencik. Danko stressed out that it is important to take steps to restore order in the company Energeticky a Prumyslovy Holding (EPH). „It is unfortunate that these predators entered our energy sector during the government of Smer-SD. I want the current coalition to reacquire these shares for the state. I do not want their debts to catch us up and looting through dividends. I would rather not be a part of the coalition if the things are not brought to an order,“ he said.
