Whether German nuclear power plants should continue to operate in 2023 is currently the subject of heated debate. The Greens are skeptical, their supporters less so.
According to a poll, the majority of Green voters are in favor of extending the life of the remaining nuclear power plants in Germany. In a representative poll by the opinion research institute Insa for the “Bild am Sonntag” newspaper, 54 percent were in favor of an extension to make energy supply less dependent on Russian gas. 38 percent of Green voters were against the continued operation.
In the general population, 70 percent are in favor of the extension, 20 percent are against it, and 10 percent are undecided.
Union and FDP promote continued operation of nuclear power plants
37 percent of people in Germany also think that the Greens set the tone in the stoplight coalition, while only 25 percent for the SPD and 20 percent for the FDP. 25 percent also consider the Greens to be the most credible (SPD: 22 percent, FDP: 15 percent).
Due to fears of a paralysis of Russian gas deliveries, a possible extension of the useful life of the last three nuclear power plants still in operation in Germany is currently being considered, which according to current nuclear legislation would have to be disconnected at the end of December. being discussed
Union and FDP are campaigning to allow at least limited continued operation beyond the turn of the year. The SPD and the Greens in particular remain skeptical. Nor do they want to rule out, in general, at least a temporary continuous operation in the event of a crisis. Insa interviewed a total of 1,002 people for Friday’s survey.
