Japan set for nuclear showdown

Days after Japan’s pro-nuclear Liberal Democratic Party was swept back to power in a landslide, millions of the country’s citizens have signed an online petition demanding the government phase out nuclear power generation.

The LDP’s victory on December 16 brought the party back to power after a rare three-year hiatus in its status as the majority party.
