Employers, trade unions and citizens protest against high electricity prices

Employers, trade unions and citizens have staged protests demanding immediate compensations for the high electricity prices. The protesters blocked traffic in central Sofia.

The electricity price on the independent energy exchange hit record highs- EUR 240 per MWh. Bulgaria’s business, as well as all non-household consumers such as schools, kindergartens and hospitals pay high electricity prices.

Employers and trade unions insist that the competent authorities undertake urgent measures to tackle surging energy prices, because businesses are facing bankruptcies and electricity supplies are at risk. “Electricity prices can be cut in half with administrative measures only, without legislative amendments”, the President of the Confederation of Independent Trade Unions in Bulgaria Plamen Dimirov said for the BNR.
