Opposition will try to bind government to publish emissions sale contract

At an ordinary session of parliament in June the opposition plans to propose a resolution that would bind the government to publish all the information about its sale of excess CO2 emissions quotas. The leaders of the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKU), the Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) and Hungarian Coalition Party (SMK) agreed on this approach at a joint meeting on June 2, the SITA newswire reported.

According to opposition leader Mikulas Dzurinda, Slovakia has very likely sold its excess emissions quotas at a very low price and in this way the opposition wants to put pressure on the governing coalition to stop hiding the facts. According to Dzurinda, the government’s reluctance to make data from the sales contract public suggests that the Smer party is in someway behind the deal, reported SITA. SITA
