Japan Opposition’s Hosoda Calls for Restarting Nuclear Reactors

Japan must restart its nuclear power plants quickly after confirming they’re safe, a senior opposition official said, three weeks ahead of an election that polls indicate will return his party to power.

“Looking at energy prices, we are clearly in a situation where we need to restart the nuclear reactors,” Hiroyuki Hosoda, the chairman of the Liberal Democratic Party’s general council said yesterday in an interview in Tokyo.
