Call for more use of nuclear power
(06-19 13:48)

The New People's Party and Civil Force said on Thursday that neither option presented by the government in its public consultation on the future fuel mix for electricity generation was acceptable.
They have instead called for a third option to be considered in which nuclear power would make up half of the mix.
Citing the results of a survey they carried out earlier this month, the vice-chairman of the New People's Party, legislator Michael Tien, said the public's main concern about electricity was its cost.
He said only nuclear power would be able to provide electricity at an acceptable cost to consumers. --RTHK
