A conclusion of the public surveys on the permanent suspension of the Shin Kori 5 and 6 nuclear reactors will be announced on Friday next week.

A state committee tasked with measuring public opinion on the fate of the two reactors says a jury panel on the issue will hold its final discussion session for three days beginning Friday of this week.

A total of 500 citizens were chosen for the jury panel, but 478 of them, who participated in the committee’s orientation session last month, will be eligible for the discussions.

The committee performed the first-stage public survey by phone on around 20-thousand people across the country until early last month. 

The second-stage survey was conducted during the jury panel orientation session last month, while third- and fourth-surveys will be carried out during the jury panel’s final discussions.
