Bulgarian MP Vows No Electricity Price Hike Until Summer of 2014
Electricity prices will not be increased in Bulgaria until the summer of 2014, according to Socialist MP Tasko Ermenkov.
Speaking to Nova TV, Ermenkov assured on Monday that energy prices will stay stable until June-July 2014, when new price-forming period begins.
The financial reserves in the Energy Department are enough to guarantee the security of the Bulgarian consumer, the lawmaker said.
Preserving the interests of Bulgarian citizens is among the priorities of the cabinet, reiterated Ermenkov.
He said the government is also considering a possible export of energy produced in the Maritza Iztok Complex power plants.
