The Economy Minister, Codrut Seres, claimed on Sunday that all political parties put pressure on him because he prepares to sell the energy only through the stock market. “Any intervention from politicians will face the same refuse”, Seres warned.

As for suspending the general managers at the main gas and electricity distribution companies, Electrica and Romgaz, Seres says that it was simply a problem of management, integrated management being a better option, because regional companies are easy prey for political manipulation.

Seres announced that an investigation is taking place at Electrica, in order to verify the way bidding were won by several suspect companies. “In case the two managers are found innocent, they will get their jobs back”, Seres said.
