Video Report: Outlook for Domestic Japanese Politics in 2023 (Dr. Harukata Takenaka, Professor, National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies)
post date : 2023.01.11
When the LDP won the House of Councillors election in July 2022, the Kishida administration was said to have obtained "golden three years" with no national elections unless PM Kishida himself dissolves the diet for a snap election. This will allow them to sit down and work on mid- and long-term policies. However, due to the questions surrounding money in politics, politics and religion, and the resignation of cabinet ministers one after another, recent polls have shown a continuous decline in the Cabinet approval rating.
In its international relations, Japan will host the G7 summit meeting in Hiroshima in May 2023 amid a mountain of problems such as a shaky international security system, and economic issues including weak yen and soaring prices.
The FPCJ has invited Dr. Harukata Takenaka, an expert on Japanese politics and professor at the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS), to discuss how the Kishida administration is going to tackle with various domestic and international challenges and how Japan's political situation will develop in 2023.
The briefing had a total of 39 participants including journalists from China, Denmark, Germany, Indonesia, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, US and Vietnam.
