"France’s President Nicolas Sarkozy vowed to keep the Fessenheim nuclear plant open after Francois Hollande, his Socialist Party rival in an election starting in April, promised to close the site because of safety concerns. ... The fate of Electricite de France SA’s Fessenheim divides Sarkozy, seeking re-election amid weak poll ratings by pledging to guide the economy through the euro-region crisis, from Socialists who aim to cut French dependence on atomic power."
