The day after the closing ceremony of the Olympics, “Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Day” without agreeing to the holiday plan May 19 15:44

Regarding the revision of the Special Measures Act, which was made a public holiday on August 9, the day after the closing ceremony of next year’s Tokyo Olympics, the Ldp’s Political Affairs Council issued an opinion that it would not be a public holiday on the day of the atomic bombing on Nagasaki.

The government’s proposed amendment to the Special Measures Act for next year’s Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games will move public holidays to coincide with the opening ceremony to ease transportation congestion.

Regarding the “Day of the Mountain”, the day after the Olympic closing ceremony, the ldp’s political affairs council issued an opinion that it would not be suitable for the day when the atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki as a public holiday.

For this reason, the LDP did not approve the amendment and called on the government to reconsider it.
