OĽaNO MP petitions against “sale of water reserves to foreign countries”
18 Jun 2014 Flash News
Ordinary People and Independent Personalities (OĽaNO) MP Igor Hraško launched an online petition on June 17 aimed at thwarting plans for the adoption of an amendment to the act on water in parliament. Government officials call Hraško’s allegations “pure lies”.
The draft amendment proposed by Environment Minister Peter Žiga was cleared by the government on June 4. If it is passed, the government will have exclusive powers to restrict or ban exports of water from Slovakia. According to Hraško, Slovakia should, first and foremost, be aware of the level of its surplus of water reserves, where the reserves are located and what sort of effect they have on global warming. To this end, he’s urging the government to carry out a study on the issue first.
