According to him, the State Property Fund plans to resume privatisation of regional power companies after the signing of the law on the National Commission on Energy, Housing and Utilities Services Regulation (NCER) and the actual announcement of RAB tariffs. In addition, Bilous said it is inappropriate to hold the privatisation tender during Christmas holidays.
