For example if one says:

"Jean est pour le nucléaire".

What does it mean? I did guess that it means to the person be a family one, someone really close to the family. Am I wrong?

    In this debate (pros and cons of nuclear energy), it means Jean thinks the pros outweight the cons and nuclear energy should be pursued. Nov 14, 2016 at 7:20

It surely means that this person "Jean" is for the nuclear energy (implicitly said).

It's a shorcut to "Jean est favorable à l'énergie nucléaire".
