Half of Lithuanians May Vote Against Nuclear Plant, Poll Shows

August 06, 2012

Almost half of Lithuanians will probably vote against the construction of a new nuclear power plant in a non-binding referendum in October, according to a survey by Prime Consulting for magazine Veidas.

Forty eight percent of Lithuanians may vote against the nuclear plant in Visaginas, while 19 percent support the construction, Veidas said.

The poll, conducted in the country’s largest cities among 500 people on July 16-17, didn’t provide a margin of error. Lithuania will hold the referendum on Oct. 14 along with general election.
