Parbeszed calls for scrapping contracts on nuclear plant upgrade

The upgrade of the Paks nuclear plant is "impossible to carry out", and so the government should withdraw from all contracts, the European Union adviser of the opposition Parbeszed - Greens told a press conference on Friday.

Contrary to the government’s statements that the upgrade had been green-lighted, the project is facing increasing challenges and “has accumulated incredible delays”, Benedek Javor said.

Construction has not actually started, the project has yet to receive an implementation permit, and the war and the sanctions against Russia have prompted several amendments to the contracts, he said. The resulting “tinkering” has resulted in “many things landing in the hands of oligarchs”, he said.
