OSAKA/TOKYO (Reuters) - Shareholders of Japan's two biggest electricity companies voted on Wednesday to stick with nuclear power despite rising public opposition after the world's worst nuclear disaster in 25 years in March last year.

The votes against abandoning nuclear power at the annual general meetings of Kansai Electric Power Co and Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco), the company at the center of last year's Fukushima disaster, come days before the country's first reactors are due to come back online.
