SDĽ rejects Sk130 bn for SPP

The leftist SDĽ party of the ruling coalition says it will vote to reject an offer of a reported Sk130 billion for a 49 per cent stake in gas utility SPP. The offer, received from an international consortium in a tender that closed February 28, must be approved by a simple majority in cabinet to be accepted. The SDĽ has six of 20 cabinet seats.
