Armenian Greens Against Sell Off of Power Grid

YEREVAN (Armenpress)–The Armenian Union of Greens is categorically against the privatization of four energy distributing companies–the Union’s chairman Hakob Sanasarian told Armenpress.

He tied the privatization of energy companies to ecological security of the country saying that "irregular privatization may affect negatively on the country’s natural resources." He said that around 80 percent of the population who won’t be able to pay increased energy bills will have to make use of natural resources putting the ecological balance in jeopardy.

"The privatization of power grid will be destructive to the country. The energy system must remain in the hands of the government because the country’s economic–military and ecological security is at stake," he said
