One of Bulgaria’s leading political formations – GERB which got through two mandates with leader Boyko Borisov acting as PM until recently, said it would aim at raising the capital of some state-run energy companies by 20 per cent through the stock exchange, should it win the elections scheduled for March 26.

A source form GERB told Publics.bg that if this programme comes to reality, there would be a double listing – at the Bulgarian Stock Exchange, and at foreign stock markets, without sharing further details.

GERB announced that it also sees the ‘rational use of the existing infrastructure and equipment for Belene NPP’ as a priority in terms of energy strategy. A report by the energy minister however should first be released sometime in March, early April, detailing the technical and legal opportunities to use the equipment for the project, which has been cancelled since 2012. GERB stressed that the potential construction of a new nuclear unit at the Belene site should only be envisaged ‘without direct or indirect state involvement, no PPAs, and following the market principles’.
