According to the prime minister, some politicians proposed or rather expressed a wish that the two ministries be merged, but it will not be carried out this year.

The prime minister added that important projects exist in the energy sector and they are being implemented on time. Some of them will continue in 2015 and the merger of the two ministries, if carried out at this time, could negatively affect project implementation.
