The National Energy Chamber (NEC), which represents more than 50 per cent of installed energy capacities in Bulgaria and more than 70 per cent of the employees in private energy businesses, took a stand against the demands by employers' organizations for the resignation of Energy Minister Temenouzhka Petkova, NEC said in a position released to the media Tuesday.

On Monday four employers' organizations demanded Petkova's resignation over the increase in the wholesale price of electricity on the free market, her alleged inability to handle the problems in the energy sector and the abandoned reforms.

In the position NEC says it favours consistent efforts for protection of the interests of the Bulgarian energy sector during the EU discussions on the Fourth Energy Package, "and not destabilization and calls for resignation" during the Bulgarian EU Presidency.

The private investors in energy support the efforts of the government towards modernization and full liberalization of the electricity market in Bulgaria, and urge whereby disputable issues are discussed in a responsible and sensible way, on a level playing field for all participants in the process.
