“The privatization of power companies really need these packages the state does not give, and keep them makes no sense. Actually it was a stupid scheme to keep minority stakes in state-owned, anything it is not allowed neither the state nor from the point of view of management companies. The state no longer participates in the management of companies, had long been to sell these packages because what happens in state-owned companies, where there is no effective owner, the state allows these companies to behave – it’s chaos,” said the Union leader.
