No consensus - Gov't puts off energy policy deadline

September 11, 2012



New energy policy deadline extended




The government put off setting a new energy policy, originally planned for Monday, due to difficulties in forming a consensus.

The decision comes after business circles opposed a goal presented last Thursday by the Democratic Party of Japan to end all dependence on nuclear power in the 2030s as the key component of the new policy.

It might take time before an agreement is reached within the government on whether to indicate a specific time frame for ending nuclear power, as opinions are sharply divided. Some DPJ members also want to avoid making the issue a focal point in the party's Sept. 21 presidential election.
