The Federation of Electric Power Companies of Japan is lobbying politicians in the ruling Liberal Democratic Party to support the construction of new nuclear power plants.The federation’s lobbying comes as the ruling party works on drafting a new national energy plan.

In a leaflet poll which is distributed to the lawmakers, the federation provides model answers to a list of questions about nuclear energy.In the leaflet, the federation says Japan should build new nuclear plants to maintain and develop the best safety standards and technologies.

It also calls for quick decisions on restarting the nation’s existing reactors, warning that increasing fossil fuel imports to make up for the absence of nuclear power will lead to a national outflow of wealth.
