Representatives gradually met with members of the Standing Committee for the Construction of NPP – Deputy Prime Minister Jan Hamáček, deputies Helena Langšádlová and Zbyněk Stanjura. “Once again, we left pleasantly surprised that all the politicians we met are aware of the urgency of announcing a tender for the construction of a new unit in Dukovany. politians support the acceleration of further construction,” said Tomáš Kovalovský. Adding that all politicians have a clear vision that the tender should be announced during this election period.
Vítězslav Jonáš reiterated that “There really is nothing to stop the announcement of a proper tender. The sending of a separate security questionnaire are only political loops. The tender should take place properly and in a standard process,” he added, “that extending and postponing the tender shortens the time for construction.
