The Democratic Left Party (SDĽ) wants only 24 per cent, as opposed to 49 per cent, of shares of Slovak gas utility SPP to be privatised. The remaining 25 per cent should be transferred to Sociálna poisťovňa insurance and used to build new pension system, they say.
But the Deputy PM for Economy, Ivan Mikloš, said changing the SPP privatisation process in its final phase would be an expression of the cabinet's irresponsibility.
