On several occasions the opposition has criticized the project for the construction of unit 7 at thermal power plant Tuzla, which is backed by the current Government of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH). Most recent critics come from the President of the Party for Bosnia and Herzegovina Amer Jerlagic, who considers that this is an expensive project which will cause the increase in the price of electricity by 32 %.
Jerlagic said at the press conference that the project is not good from political, economic and energy aspects. He stressed that the project will be entirely controlled by Chinese companies and that only a small number of local companies will be included in the construction of the new unit at TPP Tuzla.
