Representative Edano of the Constitutional Democratic Party and Mr. Izumi, chairman of the National Democratic Party of Japan, announced their candidacy for the election of representatives of the new party, including the Constitutional Democratic Party and the National Democratic Party of Japan.

On April 4, Representative Edano of the Constitutional Democratic Party and Chairman of the Izumi Political Affairs Research Committee of the National Democratic Party announced their candidacy for the election of representatives of the new parties, including the Constitutional Democratic Party and the People’s Democratic Party, which will be voting on the 10th of this month.

Mr. Edano is located in an dominant situation, with nearly 60 percent of the members of the Constitutional Democratic Party joining the new party, as well as supporting some members of the National Democratic Party, including Ichiro Ozawa, a member of the House of Representatives.

On the other hand, Mr. Izumi wants to bring in independent lawmakers in addition to the National Democratic Party of Japan, and it is expected that both sides will be active in their efforts to win support.

On the other hand, in the presidential election, a vote will be held to decide the name of the new party, and Mr. Edano has proposed the Constitutional Democratic Party and Mr. Izumi has proposed the Democratic Party of Japan.

In this regard, former Deputy Prime Minister Okada of an independent group of lawmakers, who supports Mr. Edano in the presidential election, is likely to focus on the trend of lawmakers over the party’s name, such as the idea that the party name wants to be the “Democratic Party” proposed by Mr. Izumi.
