LMP: Gov’t should step back from Paks
Although the government keeps talking about the Paks II deal in conundrum, apparently the plan is not working out well, Bernadett Szél, the MP of Hungary’s green party LMP, said on her Facebook page yesterday.
According to Szél, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said that Russian investments involving Paks II needs to be rescheduled. Szél notes that in line with the Russian deal of Paks II, Hungary is bound to repay debt as of 2026 even if works have not started yet, in fact even if Hungary has received no money from Russia.
In reaction to Lázár claiming to involve international and western European suppliers in the Paks II construction, Szél said that the statement leaves analysts she consulted clueless. She insists that the Paks deal is not transparent and the Hungarian government should decide to “step back” from the deal as Lázár suggested yesterday.
