National Democratic Party Mr. Maehara Joins with the Constitutional Democratic Party Announces non-participation August 16 11:46
Former Foreign Minister Maehara of the National Democratic Party has announced his intention not to join the merger with the Constitutional Democratic Party. It is also expected that it will influence the movement of the majority formation over the "partisan party" within the National Democratic Party.
Within the National Democratic Party, where there is ongoing discussion of the "partisan party" over the confluence with the Constitutional Democratic Party, there are ongoing moves to form a majority in both the congressional members and those who do not.
Under such circumstances, former Foreign Minister Maehara of the National Democratic Party posted a supporter meeting held in his local city of Kyoto on Twitter on the 15th, saying, ``I will not go to the confluence new party, I will choose options that remain in the National Democratic Party. I will take it."
Regarding the reason for not joining the confluence, Mr. Maehara kept in mind the possibility that the Constitutional Democratic Party could promote election cooperation with the Communist Party, "I do not want to go to a party that cooperates with the Communist Party. I can't do it."
Maehara also said, "I think there is a good chance that there will be fewer people remaining," regarding the National Democratic Party's "partition party". If you get together, this country can return."
It is expected that Mr. Maehara, who has served as minister and representative of the party, will influence the movement of the majority in the National Democratic Party by expressing his intention not to join the merger.
