Smer boss Fico pledges fight against large-scale privatisation

The leader of opposition party Smer, Robert Fico, promised to lead a massive fight against large-scale privatisation, daily SME wrote.

On November 11, the parliament is expected to adopt a bill on large-scale privatisation, to make the privatisation of strategic companies possible.

The daily expects it to turn into the toughest fight yet between the opposition and ruling coalition.

Fico objects to the existence of protocols attached to privatisation contracts, which make possible for the owners of a 49 percent share in gas utility Slovenský plynárenský priemysel (SPP) to advantageously buy an additional three percent in the company. Smer wants to ban the protocols, even those pertaining to already existing privatisation contracts.
