New Party Representative Election Expected to Be Elected by Mr. Edano September 10 at 4:12 AM

The election of representatives of the new parties, including the Constitutional Democratic Party and the National Democratic Party of Japan, is expected to be held on October 10 by members of the Diet who will join the new party, and Representative Edano of the Constitutional Democratic Party, which is spreading support across the party, is expected to be elected as the representative.
The representative election of the confluence new party, which was a contest between Mr. Izumi, chairman of the National Democratic Party of Japan, and Representative Edano of the Constitutional Democratic Party, was held at a hotel in Tokyo on October 10 by 149 members of the Diet who participated in the new party, and it was immediately voted on and the representative was elected.

In the election campaign, Mr. Edano is expected to be elected as a representative because he is expanding his support beyond the party, including the support of some members of the National Democratic Party and independent lawmakers, in addition to members of the Constitutional Democratic Party, which accounts for nearly 60% of the members of the confluence new party.

Mr. Edano’s camp is aiming to win more than 100 votes, 70% of all members of the new party, saying that in order to take the initiative in the personnel of the new party, it is necessary to be overwhelmed by the representative election.

On the other hand, Mr. Izumi’s camp is also working to catch up by reaching out to members of the Constitutional Democratic Party who are critical of Mr. Edano’s party management in order to secure a certain influence in the new party, and the focus is on the extent to which Mr. Edano will have a difference in the votes of the two parties as he strengthens his party base.

In the presidential election, there will also be a vote to decide the name of the new party, and as Mr. Izumi proposes the Democratic Party of Japan and Mr. Edano proposes the Constitutional Democratic Party, another focus will be on which party name will attract support.
