[excerpted] "Osaka Mayor Toru Hashimoto on Thursday reversed his stance on opposing the restart of two reactors at the Oi nuclear power plant in Fukui Prefecture, saying he now thinks a “limited” restart may be necessary to avert a summer power shortage.
Hashimoto’s turnabout came as a surprise as he has long been outspoken in his opposition to the restart of the Oi reactors operated by Kansai Electric Power Co. . . ."
