It is the domino e ect. It took only a ew hours to make the German decision to get out o the nuclear its intrusion in the rench political debate. And that already clea age appear: the right declaring against such a decision while the le t is more open. It is Jean- rançois Copé, General Secretary o the UMP who was one o the irst to respond on the antenna o RTL. "Me I am, or the rance, totally negati e" he explained. And to clari y that, according to him "the situation o the rance and the Germany toward energy independence is not the same on the nuclear" since 85 o the energy produced in rance comes rom nuclear power while this share is closer to 22 in the case o the Germany. "Today is a major component o the industrial power o the rance" he still said.
Le t the oices are more dissonant. Not surprisingly, the mo ement ecologists applaud in both hands. Cécile Du lot and E a Joly (Europe ecology - green) were the irst to pay tribute to the "political will" o the Germany and to see a requirement or the rance by 20 to 25 years. See e en the requirement o a go ernmental agreement le t or 2012. or its part, Nicolas Hulot, candidate in the primary o Europe ecology i esr also welcomed this decision considering that the rance did not "continue to persisting" on this issue. "A ter the Switzerland, the Germany there ore joined the countries who ha e chosen to do otherwise energy." "The rance must not continue to persisting and leap rog this debate", wrote in a statement the ormer host o tele ision, which is con erted to the output o the nuclear disaster o ukushima in March. Stéphane Lhomme, President o the Obser atory o nuclear power, also candidate or the EEL primary iew in a news release that it is "within ten years the rance can and should do the re erse path" on the atom
But in contrast, positions are clearly less entrenched in the ranks o the Socialist Party. And di isions are appearing. Harlem Désir, the number two o the party, applauded the German decision. "I think that we also, we should prepare phasing out o nuclear power." (...) "tomorrow, need to be pioneer in solar, in the geothermal energy in the wind" explains - it. But e en i Benoit Hamon, the PS spokesman ensures that the party will engage in a way that is "the output o the nuclear and oil" or the hour o the dissonant oices are heard. The image o that o Jérôme Cahuzac, the PS President o the Board o inance in the National Assembly. or him the Berlin decision is "probably a duty policy but the Germany is in an energy context which has nothing to do with the one that knows the rance, which depends on much more than nuclear energy depends that is on today the Germany" he explained thereby excluding any temptation to ollowership. "Con ergence in this ield with the Germany is not indispensable." "We ha e an energy policy that has been decided many decades ago, successi e Go ernments ha e endorsed this energy policy, I think they will in the uture e en i I eel the de elopment o renewable and alternati e energies do" he concludes. While on the other hand Jean-Christophe Cambadélis, national Secretary o the PS international, inter iewed on R I quali ies the political reasons behind the German decision: "It is clear that Mrs Merkel is extremely ragile in his coalition and that it seeks the ecologist electorate" he explains.
