IMARI, Saga -- Imari Mayor Yoshikazu Tsukabe said on July 4 that he had no intention of approving a plan to restart the Genkai Nuclear Power Plant in Saga Prefecture.

The Saga Prefecture city of Imari falls within 30 kilometers from Kyushu Electric Power Co.'s Genkai nuclear power station. Imari Mayor Tsukabe said at a regular news conference, "I have no intention of giving consent to restarting (the nuclear plant)."

It is the first time for the head of a municipal government among eight municipalities in three prefectures of Saga, Fukuoka and Nagasaki that are within 30 kilometers from the Genkai nuclear plant to voice such opposition.

Tsukabe said, "If a nuclear accident occurs, we can't recover from it," adding, "I will state my opposition (if I am questioned by the prefectural government)."
