Civic Group Seeks Nuclear Referendum in Niigata Pref.(JIJI PRESS Dec.25 2012)

A local civic group petitioned the Niigata prefectural government on Tuesday to establish an ordinance to call a referendum on whether a Tokyo Electric Power Co. nuclear plant should be restarted.

The petition about TEPCO's Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant in the central Japan prefecture was filed with Niigata Governor Hirohiko Izumida.

According to the prefecture, Izumida will call a meeting of the prefectural assembly within 20 days of accepting the petition and submit to it a draft ordinance that reflects his opinion.

The electoral councils of Niigata municipalities approved signatures from 68,353 people for the petition out of 72,027 submitted by the group in November.

The final figure exceeded the 2 pct of eligible voters in the prefecture, or nearly of 40,000 people, needed to submit a petition.
