Rezeš after SPP?

Deputy Prime Minister for Economy Ivan Mikloš said the attempt of the HZDS opposition party to have a vote of non-confidence in the government called in parliament “is connected with the interest of Alexander Rezeš in gaining SPP”. Rezeš, former president of Košice steel mill VSŽ and a former Transport Minister in the 1994-1998 Vladimír Mečiar government, now lives in Spain. Last week, in front of a student audience at Trenčín University, Prime Minister Mikuláš also accused Rezeš of wanting to “snatch SPP”, saying that the opposition HZDS party, of which Rezeš was a member, “hopes that after elections they will start spinning out crazy billions of uncovered promissory notes.” Ján Jasovský of the HZDS responded that had the party truly wanted to privatise the gas utility for itself it would not have passed a law during its time in government forbidding such sales.
