Coalition again disagrees over SPP

Two of the strongest ruling coalition parties, the former communist SDĽ and the centre-right SDKÚ, again failed to agree on the sale of a 49 per cent stake in gas utility SPP, with the SDĽ pushing for the stake to be reduced to 24 per cent, and the SDKÚ defending the existing scheme. Binding offers are expected for SPP by the end of the month.
