» Half of LDP members call for an end to nuclear power

Roughly 50 lawmakers of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, or more than 10 percent of the party’s members in parliament, have called for an end to nuclear power generation in Japan in the future.

Just four lawmakers were in favor of building new nuclear power plants in a survey of 407 LDP members in both chambers, with responses obtained from about 320.

Among the lawmakers who responded, more than 80 percent called for making use of renewable energy while maintaining nuclear plants to supply electricity to the country.
