President to veto legislation on waste disposal over solar issue

President Miloš Zeman will reportedly veto legislation on waste disposal that includes a loophole benefit for solar energy operators, the president’s spokeswoman Hana Burianová has revealed. If the president takes the step, the veto will be his first since taking office. The mistake in the law, allows solar energy plants an additional six months to sign contracts on financing for the removal of solar panel waste. The chairwoman of the lower house, Miroslava Němcová, said the chamber had not passed the bill in its current wording but that the mistake had taken place in the Senate.
