Opposition LMP blames Orbán for Paks upgrade
Budapest, April 11 (MTI) – The opposition LMP party puts the blame on Prime Minister Viktor Orbán for the planned upgrade of the Paks nuclear power plant, a board member said on Tuesday.
No matter whom Orbán appoints to minister in charge of the project, he is personally responsible for the project, the agreement concluded with Russia “on the sly” and the government’s failure to consult the public about the plan, Péter Ungár told a press conference.
Orbán announced on Monday that a minister without portfolio would be appointed to oversee and manage the upgrade.
Commenting on the announcement, Ungár said that instead of making this “senseless” move, the government should rather call a referendum on the issue.
