Regarding the National Voting Law, which stipulates the procedure for constitutional amendment, the Liberal Democratic Party, the Komei Party, and the Nippon Ishin no Kai have included relaxation of the requirements for a place of residence to become a witness to voting in accordance with the Public Offices Election Law. However, I submitted the revised bill to the House of Representatives.

The amendment to the National Voting Law, which was jointly submitted to the House of Representatives by the Liberal Democratic Party, the Komeito Party, and the Nippon Ishin no Kai, is to improve the voting environment in line with the Public Offices Election Law, which was revised three years ago. ..



Specifically, while it has been pointed out that there is a shortage of voting witnesses, it is possible to relax requirements such as residence, and to set up a ballot counting office locally if the ballot box cannot be carried from a remote island due to bad weather. In addition, it will be possible to broadcast the constitutional amendment bill not only on radio AM but also on FM.



On the other hand, the TV and Internet advertising regulations required by the Constitutional Democratic Party are not included in this amendment.

Yoshitaka Shindo of the Liberal Democratic Party, who submitted the bill, said, "Discussion has begun at the Constitutional Research Committee of the House of Representatives on advertising restrictions such as television, and we would like to discuss it firmly and work to amend the law."
