Disunity Over Nuclear Policy Among Christian Democrats

Published onsdag 4 februari 2009 kl 10.22

Splits are emerging in the Christian Democrat party over the issue of nuclear power.

On Friday their leader Göran Hägglund made a break with the party’s usual line and stated that new reactors should be built when the old ones are decommissioned.

Now Anders Wijkman, in the EU Parliament for the Christian Democrats, says that it is wrong to spend money on new nuclear power stations - and that many in the party agree with him.

The Christian Democrats are one of the smaller parties in the governing centre-right alliance, which is trying to unify around the issue of nuclear power.

Talking to Swedish radio news Wijkman says that current moves to include the nuclear option in Sweden’s energy policy show the effect of pressure from industry.
