The left applauded the vote of this article, the discussion has ceased to be elongated by UMP. Thus the member of the Upper Rhine Michel Sordi, whose riding includes the Fessenheim threatened with closure, as well as reiterated associated jobs Friday morning to be “attached to nuclear.”

The reduction of the share of nuclear power is in fact strongly opposed by the UMP, opposed to any “ideological bias” and “a political compromise between the candidate François Hollande and environmentalists.” UMP and UDI also criticize the majority say nothing of the impact of this choice on the electricity bills.

The Assembly must end Friday evening review of 64 articles of the draft law “on the energy transition to green growth.”
