The Science Council of Japan to debate the Diet over the appointment of a candidate for membership

The Science Council of Japan to debate the Diet over the appointment of a candidate for membership October 7 at 6:22 a.m.

With the appointment of some of the candidates for membership of the Science Council of Japan to be postponed, the opposition parties will pursue the reasons for the sent-off at the Diet’s closed examination on July 7, while the government will explain and seek understanding based on Prime Minister Kan’s decision to “ensure comprehensive and comprehensive activities.”
The Diet will hold a closed review at the Cabinet Committee of both Houses of the House of Representatives to discuss the response of the new coronavirus for two days on the 7th and 8th.

In this report, the opposition party will pursue the reasons and circumstances of the appointment of Prime Minister Kan for the appointment of some of the new membership candidates recommended by the Science Council of Japan, saying it violates academic freedom.

Moreover, it is decided that it contradicts the answer that the government explained in the past, “The person who recommended it does not refuse” about having put together the document that it was not possible to say that it was not possible to say that there was an obligation to appoint the member according to the recommendation of the meeting to the prime minister in the government.

On the other hand, the government has decided to point out that Deputy Minister Mitsubayashi of the Cabinet Office, who is in charge of the Science Council of Japan, spends approximately 1 billion yen a year on the academic conference, that members become national government officials in special positions, and that current members can effectively nominate successors.

On that basis, I would like to explain and seek understanding of the appointment of some of the potential members, based on Prime Minister Kan’s decision to “make a decision from the viewpoint of ensuring comprehensive and comprehensive activities.”
