GERB leader Boyko Borissov told journalists on Friday that Finance Minister Assen Vassilev had confirmed to him that the Bulgarian coal-fired power plants will stay in operation until 2038, and that it is possible for anyone who decides to quit their job to be paid 36 salaries.
Earlier on Friday, he said that the main issue is keeping job places in the regions in question. He spoke on occasion of country wide protests of energy workers and miners against the approval of the Territorial Just Transition Plans (TJTPs) by the Council of Ministers at its extraordinary meeting on Friday.
Borissov said that at a meeting between Vassilev and GERB-UDF MP and Energy Committee Chair Delyan Dobrev, it transpired that no photovoltaics will be built on dams.
According to Borissov, protests are not a solution but only a bother to citizens.
