The Liberal Democratic Party plans to set up a round-table conference headed by Vice President Aso and proceed with discussions on the ideal form of stable succession to the throne.
However, with the House of Councilors election ahead, some are cautious about summarizing the party's ideas as soon as possible, and it is expected that it will take some time to reach a conclusion.
The government submitted a report compiled by the Council of Experts to the Diet last week over the stable succession to the throne, and on the 18th, Chief Cabinet Secretary Matsuno reported to the representatives of the parliamentary groups of both houses of the Diet. I will explain the contents of the book.
Under these circumstances, Prime Minister Kishida will meet with Vice President Aso of the Liberal Democratic Party and Secretary General Motegi in the Diet on the 17th, and will set up a round-table conference with Mr. Aso at the top to consider the idea of the party. I confirmed.
At the round-table conference, discussions will be held based on the contents of the report, which includes two measures to secure the number of royal families: a plan for a female royal family to remain in the imperial family after marriage and a plan for adopting a male male of the former royal family. It is expected to proceed.
However, while there is an opinion that the inheritance of the throne should be maintained by males, there is also an opinion that inheritance including females should be considered as an option.
For this reason, some are cautious about summarizing the party's ideas early, saying that it is not desirable for disagreements to surface ahead of the upper house election in the summer, and it is expected that it will take time to reach a conclusion.Keywords:
