The closure of the Fessenheim nuclear power plant was an election campaign engagement of the future President Hollande in 2012. But its closure did not finally take place during its 5-year mandate.
The new President Macron takes over this commitment on his own account. In a televised interview, the new Minister in charge of Ecologigal Transition Nicolas Hulot confirmed the closure of the nuclear plant, the oldest in France. The Minister nevertheless insisted on taking into account the human element, the nuclear sector employing 200 000 people in France.
