"Difference in response between Germany and Japan over the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident"
The environment political party, "Green Party" made a breakthrough, and the ruling coalition parties were defeated in the state parliament elections held in Baden-Burtenburg, south-western Germany on Mar. 27.
What surprised me was that the chancellor Merkel said "It's apparent that the discussion over the big accident of the Fukushima nuclear power plant has become the cause of defeat." (Asahi newspaper Mar. 29)
