No Referendum on Bulgaria's Nuke Units Closure
Except for the Bulgarian socialists, no other party has asked for referendum on that move, Vesselin Bliznakov, head of the parliamentary energy commission, explained.
Bliznakov pointed out that some 15% of the Bulgarian people are not aware of the existence of nuclear units in Bulgaria. He also stated that the second nuclear plant in Belene will start working by 2010.
Bulgaria's government was put under strong pressure June 9 over the fate of two of the units of the country's only nuclear power plant, facing EU demand for shutting them down and national demands for keeping them active. Sixty-eight Bulgarian parliamentarians from across the political spectrum placed a motion before the 240-seat parliament calling for a referendum on the future of the reactors, located at the Kozlodouy plant in the north of the country.
