Question marks over privatizations

DESPITE the departure of the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) from the government, the cabinet still wants to complete the privatization of power utility Slovenské elektrárne (SE).

According to the Pravda daily, the sale of the Bratislava and Košice airports is also likely to go ahead.

The fate of other privatization sales is uncertain, however.

Although a privatization commission yesterday recommended to Transport Minister Pavol Prokopovič that Rail Cargo Austria and the Slovak J&T Finance Group be selected as the winner of the privatization tender for railway cargo transporter ZSSK Cargo Slovakia, PM Mikuláš Dzurinda said that based on a political agreement he would not include any more privatizations on the government's agenda.

According to unconfirmed information, however, Prokopovič intends to negotiate for support with the opposition to complete the Cargo sale.
