A petition in support of Maritsa East Mines and Maritsa East-2 thermal power plant has been launched in the town of Yambol (Southeast Bulgaria). It was organized by the Confederation of Labor Podkrepa. The organizers of the petition insist that Bulgaria’s authorities start discussions on the “Energy” chapter of this country’s Recovery and Resilience Plan.

On Facebook the Chairman of the Confederation of Employers and Industrialists of Bulgaria Kiril Domuschiev called for resignations in the management of this country’s energy sector. “Since the beginning of August, Bulgaria has been the European country with the most expensive electricity”, noted Kiril Domuschiev. Meanwhile, Bulgaria has been exporting electricity whose price is lower than the price of electricity sold on the Bulgarian power exchange, added Kiril Domuschiev.
