The Liberal Democratic Party of Osaka submits a request for a vote by party members The LDP presidential election August 31 16:03
With regard to the LDP presidential election to choose Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s successor, the Liberal Democratic Party of Osaka submitted a request to the party headquarters on March 31 for a vote on the party, taking it for granted that it would be natural to listen to the voices of each member of the party.
The LDP presidential election, which will choose Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s successor, is expected to be coordinated by the party’s executive branch, which will hold a general meeting of members of both houses of parliament from September 13 to 15, without a vote on the party members, and the method and schedule are expected to be decided on the day.
Under these circumstances, the Liberal Democratic Party of Osaka Prefecture submitted a request to the party headquarters on March 31 to request the implementation of a party vote under the name of the secretary general and general secretary of the prefectural government, saying that it should reflect the will of local party members.
In his request, he said, “The vote of party members in the presidential election is the greatest right that a party member has, and the greatest advantage of becoming a member of the party. There is also a fear that a decline in party membership will be spurred if the party members’ rights cannot be exercised at this time when a new president is expected.”
On top of that, he strongly calls for the implementation of a party vote, “It is natural for the Liberal Democratic Party to listen to the voices of each member of the party and to conduct a party membership vote, which is a regular presidential election.”
