SE sale advisor tender expected

A tender for the selection of an advisor to the government in the sale of an almost 45% share in the energy utility Slovenské elektrárne was expected to be launched October 26 with the publication of an ad in the Financial Times newspaper.

The actual sale of a 49% stake in the power monolith is expected to begin some time next year. But analysts say the chances of selling the share before the next parliamentary elections in September 2002 are slim.
