Broad support for nuclear energy, but most parties want a referendum

Ljubljana, 15 April - Parties that polls suggest have a chance of making it to parliament in the 24 April general election support building unit 2 of the Krško nuclear power plant (NEK 2), but most say it should be put to a referendum first. The Left says the project should be put on hold until broad public debate is held on issues involved.

NEK, located in Vrbina near the town of Krško on the border with Croatia, which owns half of the nuclear power station, build at a time of former Yugoslavia.
