German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has ordered the country's three remaining nuclear power stations to continue operating until mid-April. Scholz’s order ends weeks of dispute within his governing coalition. The head of the liberal Free Democratic Party coalition partner, Christian Lindner, was pressing to keep all three plants running until at least 2024, while the Green Party led by Economy Minister Robert Habeck insisted on closing them as scheduled at the end of 2022.

The liberal Free Democratic Party, on the other hand, had been pushing to keep all three reactors active until 2024.
