Fico hangs tough on Bohunice

Robert Fico, leader of the non-parliamentary Smer party, the country’s second most popular, has said if he enters government after September elections he will lobby to have the current government’s decision to close the Bohunice nuclear plant overturned.

The government agreed, under pressure from the European Union, to close the aging plant between 2006 and 2008. Fico has said he will try to reverse the decision, even if it means going against a deal reached between Slovakia and the EU in the Energy docket of entry talks.
