Harsh condition   Problems in the electricity distribution system
Problems in the electricity distribution system, linked to harsh weather conditions and increased power consumption, triggered authorities to sent the request, according to the Bulgarian National Television.

Private NOVA TV broadcaster says that according to Romania's Energy Minister Florian-Toma Petcu, Bucharest did not grant the request as its own electricity consumption had increased due to the bad weather.

"Taking into account the delicate situation in which Romania could be placed, we did not take the commitment and said we were unable to help," NOVA quotes Petcu as saying citing the Bulgarian News Agency (BTA).
