Liberal Democratic Party’s former Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications Noda’s willingness to win the presidential election “as usual for a day” August 28 at 7:09 p.m.
Mr. Noda, former Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications of the Liberal Democratic Party, told reporters in the Diet that he was eager to run for the presidential election to replace Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
In this interview, Mr. Noda, former Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications of the Liberal Democratic Party, expressed his intention to resign, saying, “It is really respectful that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has an incurable disease and has done his job as a hard-working prime minister. I think I did my best as a member of the House of Representatives and as one of my colleagues.”
On that basis, he expressed his willingness to run for president, noting that “it was a long time ago that I tried to raise my hand to run for the LDP presidential election, but my feelings have not changed in a day since then.”
On the other hand, regarding the state of the presidential election, he said, “I want the party members to participate firmly and create a stage where they can choose the president,” and called for the presidential election to be held in the form of a vote of party members.
