Environment, Energy & Climate Change Minister George Papaconstantinou on Monday stressed that decisions for the operation of the state-run Public Power Corp. (PPC SA) are made by its management, characterizing as “unacceptable” an earlier statement by the union (GENOP) representing PPC employees.
GENOP stated that it will not allow PPC to be used as a “tax collection mechanism” in response to a government decision to impose an extraordinary surtax on properties via electricity bills.
