Bulgarian Parliament will vote on the Socialists' move for calling on referendum over the decommissioning of units 3 and 4 of nuke plant Kozloduy.

Their closure has been set as a prerequisite on the very start of EU entry negotiations.

A total of 64 MPs, including socialists and maverick parliamentarians, have initiated a subscription in support for a referendum on the nuke units decommissioning.

In a series of visits and peer reviews the European nuclear watchdog has concluded positively on the high level of safety and exploitation functionality of both Russia-made units.

President Georgi Parvanov also raised a critical voice against the EU-bound engagement by the previous government, who - according to him - had been overhasty agreeing to close Kozloduy's units 3 and 4.
