Polish PM: Referendum possible on nuclear energy

Poland's prime minister says the country could call a referendum on whether to build nuclear power plants.
Donald Tusk said Wednesday he would not rule out the possibility of such a referendum, an idea being pushed by a center-left opposition party in the wake of Japan's Fukushima disaster.
He says it's crucial for society to support the nuclear power project, though he also says it might be enough for parliament to have the final say.
Opinion surveys show a majority of Poles favor Tusk's plans to build Poland's first-ever nuclear power plants over the next decade, part of an effort to secure the nation's energy independence.
However, the Japanese accident has sparked debates on the issue and calls by some officials to rethink the plan.
