Social Democratic Party Confluence Proposals Remaining at Party Convention and Joining Majority Movement October 23, 5:20
The Social Democratic Party has decided to discuss a bill at the party convention in November that would allow members of the party and members to join the Constitutional Democratic Party.
If passed, the party will effectively split, and there will be more activity to involve local organizations across the country to form a majority between the "residuals" and the "confluences."
Regarding the pros and cons of joining the Constitutional Democratic Party, the Social Democratic Party discussed at the standing secretary meeting on the 22nd, and as a result, the party will remain, but next month, members of the party and members will approve if they wish to join the Constitutional Democratic Party. I decided to consult at the extraordinary party convention.
At the party convention, 176 delegates have the right to vote, and if a majority of the attendees agree with the bill, it will be passed, effectively splitting the party.
Secretary-General Yoshida and his colleagues, who are in favor of joining the Constitutional Democratic Party, are planning to visit local organizations in the future to call for their support, saying, "The road will be divided, but we will do our best to pass it."
On the other hand, the leaders of Fukushima, who intend to remain in the party, said, "We should avoid merging and splitting the party," and involved local organizations nationwide to form a majority between "residuals" and "joins." It is expected that the movement to do will become active.
On the other hand, if the bill is passed and the party splits, it is expected that the procedure for joining the Constitutional Democratic Party will take time because it will be necessary to divide local organizations and make adjustments over funds.
