Bulgaria Govt to Decide Fate of Belene Nuclear Plant in September
The Bulgarian government of the GERB party is going to decide in September whether to go ahead with the construction of the Belene Nuclear Power Plant, or to kill the project.
This was stated Sunday by the Bulgarian Minister of Economy, Energy, and Tourism, Traicho Traikov, who also told the Bulgarian National Radio that the cabinet had not given up the project.
"One of the major factors in our decision will be how much the electricity produced at Belene is going to cost. It will be more expensive than that produced at the Kozloduy Power Plant," Traikov said. In his words, Bulgaria had the cheapest electricity in Europe.
The Minister also announced that a new law for tourism was being drafted, and is due to be adopted by the Parliament in September.

Wow! The good, old tradition of every government since the late 1980is in Bulgaria is insteadto start with adopting new laws, without examinating what has been acchieved until now. This is how they destroyed bulgarias huge agricultural wealth and opened door for turkish imports, this is how they destroyed the bulgarian family trough the so called industrialization of the country in the 50is, this is how they are going to destroy also tourism, by increasing the state control of the chair beaurucrats... Incredible stupidity in the country of the limitless impossibilities!!!
