Italian nuclear referendum question

The outcome? Just over 94% voted no.

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has accepted the rejection of his nuclear power plans and other policies in a popular referendum.

With more than 90% opposition to his policies, he said Italians had made their opinion “clear” and government and parliament must “respond fully”.

The PM had wanted to restart a nuclear programme abandoned in the 1980s. [BBC]
