Austria files EU legal challenge to Hungarian nuclear power plan. Staunchly anti-nuclear Austria has filed a legal challenge at the European Court of Justice against the European Commission over its approval of Hungary’s plans to expand an atomic power plant. Austria’s new government, an alliance between Chancellor Sebastian Kurz’s conservatives and the far-right Freedom Party, has pledged to continue Vienna’s decades-long policy of opposing nuclear power. It said last month that it would file the legal challenge against the expansion of the Paks power plant situated near the border it shares with Hungary.
