Enel (Italy) and ČEZ (Czech Republic), the two bidders of a 66-percent stake in power producer Slovenské elektrárne (SE), have extended their offers until December 10, Economy Minister Pavol Rusko confirmed November 29.

Rusko said that the final details of the privatisation would be worked out on November 29 and ready for submission to the Cabinet on Wednesday.
