The Upper House Election and Japanese Politics (Prof. Harukata Takenaka, The National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS))

post date : 2016.04.07

unnamedThe main issues for the House of Councillors election planned for July this year will likely be the TPP, security legislation, lack of daycare spaces, and the effectiveness of Abenomics and the consumption tax increase. Topics such as the effects of the lowered voting age and movements of the various parties, including electoral cooperation among the opposition parties, are being looked at closely. The FPCJ has invited Dr. Harukata Takenaka, a professor at the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS), to discuss the political situation leading up to the Upper House election. Don’t miss this rare chance!
