(ANSAmed) - LJUBLJANA, APRIL 3 - The project to build a second reactor in the nuclear power plant of Krsko should be reconsidered, according to the newly appointed Slovenian Infrastructure Minister Samo Omerzel. The new minister was discussing the issue of investments and funds.

Omerzel was elected Tuesday by the Slovenian parliament with 49 votes while 29 lawmakers voted against him. Omerzel is replacing Igor Maher who stepped down over construction abuse charges just five days after being appointed to the cabinet.

The new minister, a 39-year-old engineer, is in charge of one of the ministries with the most well endowed budgets and with priorities including energy, infrastructure projects and the search for new investors. On the energy front, Omerzel wants to focus on completing work on the thermoelectric plant of Sostanj and the construction of hydroelectric power plants on the Sava river.(ANSAmed).
