Yukiko Kada, leader of the Tomorrow Party, leaves after a news conference in Tokyo early Monday, Dec. 17, 2012. More than 20 months after a catastrophic nuclear disaster, massive protests against atomic energy and public opinion polls backing the phase-out of reactors, a pro-nuclear party won Japan’s parliamentary election.

The Tomorrow Party, which ran on a strong anti-nuclear platform, fizzled out, ending up with just nine seats in Sunday’s vote.
