Majority of Hungarians against closure of Paks power plant.

13-06-2003

Anti-nuclear activists in Austria and Hungary are urgently calling for Hungary's only nuclear power plant, Paks to be shut down. The calls for closure follow a series of incidents in which radiation reportedly escaped from the plant. Still a recent survey of the Median Research Institute shows -that only 22 per cent of Hungarians are in favour of an immediate closure of the Paks plant.
