Whether German nuclear power plants should continue operating beyond 2023 is currently the subject of heated debate. Greens are skeptical – their supporters are few.
According to a survey, a majority of Green voters are in favor of extending the life of Germany’s remaining nuclear power plants.

Among the general public, 70 percent are in favor of the extension, 20 percent are against, and 10 percent are undecided.
Union and FDP promote continued operation of nuclear power plants

The union and FDP are campaigning to allow at least limited continued activity beyond the start of the year. Especially the SPD and the Greens are still skeptical.
