The tender for a sale of 49% of shares in SE opened in August 2002, and originally, the shares in SE were to be sold in 2003. However, the situation is now very different, and it cannot be ruled out that the state will be selling off over 49%. Rusko said: “The tender might be extended. That is why the bill is going to parliament. We want to be open and we want to consider all options. It means that we can accept offers for ‘all together’, but we can also consider offers for a separate purchase of nuclear plants and a separate offer for other types of power plant.” As a result, the sale of power plants and the money for the state will be delayed by two years.
