The tender for Slovakia’s electronic road-toll collection system, for which the winner has already been chosen, will continue, said Transport, Posts and Telecommunications Minister Lubomir Vazny on Thursday. Vazny was reacting to the opposition SDKU-DS party’s appeal to both him and Prime Minister Robert Fico to ”cancel the non-transparent tender”. The National Highway Company (NDS), which is managing the tender, has excluded three out of the four bidders, effectively choosing the winner – Slovak-French consortium SanToll. The three unsuccessful bidders then filed objections with the Public Procurements Office (UVO), which has ruled that their exclusion was legitimate. At the same time, the minister confirmed that the European Commission on Wednesday asked the Slovak Government for data regarding the tender, including the reasons why the three unsuccessful bidders were excluded.
