	"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."
