Budapest, December 22 (MTI) – The radical nationalist Jobbik party rejects government plans to set up an international advisory body for the expansion of the Paks nuclear power station.

Party lawmaker Lajos Kepli told a press conference on Monday that Jobbik supports the current management of the nuclear power station and opposes plans to replace them or subordinate them to a group of unknown composition.

In the current foreign policy situation it would be dangerous to allow foreign control or influence in a power station that supplies 50 percent of Hungary’s electricity, he added.

Jobbik is also against alleged plans to lay off 800 people from the power station because the safe operation of the facility would require the current number of workers.
