GLOBAL 2000 has succeeded in attracting the support of 700 000 people in Austria for a worldwide withdrawal from nuclear power.
The group is now planning a European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) under the ‘My vote against nuclear power’ banner.
The Commission has rejected this ECI on the grounds that it would interfere with the Euratom Treaty.
However, an existing legal opinion indicates that the demands expressed in the ECI meet EU requirements.
Would the Commission explain in detail the reasons for its rejection, contrary to the legal opinion?
