"A pro-nuclear-power mayor of a town known for a long-stalled
reactor project defeated his anti-nuclear opponent in a blow to the
anti-nuclear movement that has grown in Japan since the crisis at the
Fukushima Daiichi power plant.
"According to officials in the southwestern town of Karninoseki in
Yamaguchi prefecture, incumbent Shigemi Kasiwabara, 62, scored 1,868
votes in the closely watched election,more than twice the 905 votes
recorded for his challenger, Sadao Yamato."
