The result of the last Upper House election and our path to take

Appeal on a drastic regulatory reform in the economic growth strategies

The Upper House election was over. I visited twenty prefectures throughout Japan as a chairman of Policy Research Council and head of Election Strategy Headquarter.  I would like to express my appreciation from bottom of my heart for all the warm supports which I received in each region.  What I mainly appealed during the election was that the economic growth strategies should be focused on a drastic regulatory reform to make the economy activate.  It was important to break down vested interests for its realization.

The election resulted in an increase of 5 seats

As a result of the last election, Liberal Democratic Party (L.D.P.) and the New Komeito drastically increased their seats.  We, Your Party, gained 5 seats from the previous numbers which were 4 seats of the electoral districts, 4 seats of the proportional representation constituency and 3 seats up for re-election.  Our result was not the level which we proudly say to be significant breakthrough with confidence.  Although I think that the result can be well compared to that of the Japanese Communist Party, which increased from three to eight, the media reported it as an impressive result.

Raise our policy and present our roadmap

Your Party’s share of the vote in the proportional-representation constituency at the Lower House election last year was 8.72%.  This time it edged up slightly to 8.90% at the last Upper House election.  I think that we stayed well under the situation in which the Democratic Party of Japan (D.P.J.) decreased their share from 16% to 13.40% and the Japan Restoration Party from 20.38% to 11.90%.  In contrast, the L.D.P. and the New Komeito increased each their shares in all over the country, the L.D.P. from 27.62% to 34.70% and the New Komeito from 11.83% to 14.20%.  This figure shows that the L.D.P. and the New Komeito have taken over from the D.P.J. and the Japan Restoration Party, we have to study seriously this fact.  We will stress the need strongly to appeal to the public and to present roadmap.

Work toward National Administrative Reform

Your Party is concerned the media reports that the Party goes into a confusion after the last election.  Now Your Party is a center of attention as a core partner of opposition parties when the reorganization takes place.  It is regrettable that such media reports were published.  We will carefully examine the result of the Upper House election and necessary issues to revise within the party.  Then we will unite firmly ourselves under the same principle and philosophy.  We appreciate your continued support and encouragement.

Member of the House of Representatives
