LMP demands total cost figure for Paks enlargement

LMP demands total cost figure for Paks enlargement

The government should “come clean” and release the total cost of the Paks nuclear plant upgrade project, a board member of opposition LMP said on Wednesday.

Speaking at a press conference, Szabolcs Turcsán also raised what additional cost “several years of delay” in the implementation would incur.

He referred to the Hungary-Russia agreement under which the project is to be implemented as “the worst deal of the century”, insisting that the project had “failed”. He called on the entire government to take responsibility.

Turcsán called for a referendum to be held on the upgrade.

“Hungary will only become [energy] independent if it switches to renewables,” he added.
