Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The timing makes me suspect that this is largely intended to quiet protests against the restart of the reactors

Actually you could surmise the opposite: the timing of the repeatedly postponed decision on the first reactor re-starts may have been set for the same date to fig-leaf it with the adoption of the feed-in law, the 1 July 2012 start date of which was decided way back: Naoto Kan's cabinet approved it hours before the 11 March 2011 earthquake/tsunami and Japan's parliament on 28 August the same year.
