Parties Clash over Moon's Nuclear Energy Policy at Confirmation Hearing

Rival parties clashed over the Moon Jae-in government’s policy to phase out nuclear power plants during a confirmation hearing of Trade, Energy and Industry Minister nominee Paik Un-gyu on Wednesday.

Opposition parties criticized that the government was too rash and undemocratic in the process of suspending the construction of two nuclear plants.

However, the ruling Democratic Party claimed that the government’s nuclear power phase-out policy is an inevitable shift in the energy policy to protect the environment and public safety.

During his confirmation hearing, Energy Minister nominee Paik expressed his support for Moon’s plans to phase out nuclear and coal-fired power plants. He also vowed to actively collect public opinions on the future of two nuclear plants to ensure the policy transition will be carried out through a democratic process.
