DK protests Paks upgrade

November 8th, 2017

The leftist opposition Democratic Coalition (DK) has again voiced protest concerning the upgrade project of the nuclear power plant at Paks, arguing that the planned two new blocks "are not needed now, nor will be necessary in future". DK deputy leader Laszlo Varju spoke in reaction to reports that Hungary would start calling down a Russian loan of 10 billion euros to finance the project, and said it was "obvious" that "large kick-backs will go into pockets close to [ruling] Fidesz". Varju said that a growing number of countries decided to switch over to renewable energies and eliminate nuclear plants, and insisted that the upgrade project would increase rather than lower Hungary's dependency on foreign energy sources.
