Economy minister insists price of energy must be reduced

ECONOMY Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek continues to demand that the SPP natural gas utility reduce household prices despite a decision by the market regulator to approve a 4.3 percent rise as of November 1.

The ministry also continues to refuse to publish the analysis it claims to possess showing that energy prices in Slovakia are inflated and can be cut.

“We’ve got analyses, we’re always working with them, and we will continue to work with them,” said ministry spokesman Branislav Zvára.

“We would like to reduce gas price by 10 percent. If the ministry knows how to do it, they should inform us,” said an official with the market regulator for the Pravda daily.
