Outlook for the 26th House of Councillors Election and the Future of Japanese Domestic Politics (Dr. Yu UCHIYAMA, Professor, University of Tokyo Graduate School of Arts and Sciences)

post date : 2022.06.20

The 26th Upper House election will be held on July 10, with the campaign period beginning on June 22. For Prime Minister Kishida, this will be the first time his administration faces a vote judging its results. If the ruling party retains a majority in the House of Councillors, it will be more than three years until the next national election, unless the prime minister dissolves the House of Representatives himself.

 

The FPCJ has invited Dr. Yu Uchiyama of Tokyo University, five days prior to the election, to talk about the outlook for the Upper House election and the future of Japanese domestic politics.
