Toru Hashimoto against resuming operations

April 16, 2012


Osaka mayor criticizes govt. on reactor restart



Osaka Mayor Toru Hashimoto has pledged that his party will seek a public mandate on the central government's nuclear power policy.

Hashimoto criticized the government on Monday for giving the green light to restarting the Ohi nuclear power plant, which supplies electricity to Japan's second-largest city of Osaka and its surrounding areas.

He said the government had declared the plant safe without consulting the Nuclear Safety Commission. He added that if the plant resumes operation under the current procedures, Japan's system of government will face a state of crisis.

Hashimoto said he is against the government's handling of the matter and that his One Osaka Party will put up resistance.

The One Osaka Party is now a regional political group, and is preparing to field candidates in national-level elections.
