Ratings of Japan PM, ruling party fall on scandal

Ratings of Japan PM, ruling party fallonscandal

TOKYO (Reuters) – Voter support for Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama and his party has fallen due to a funding scandal linked to his powerful No.2 party executive, two media surveys showed on Monday, raising the risk of a policy stalemate.

Opposition parties have threatened to boycott parliamentary debate on an extra budget to prop up the economy if the ruling Democratic Party dodges questions about the scandal ensnaring its secretary-general, Ichiro Ozawa.

The scandal could also threaten the Democrats’ chances of gaining a majority in a mid-year election for parliament’s upper house that they need to win to pass legislation smoothly.

Support for Hatoyama’s cabinet, which had already slid since he took office four months ago due to voters’ doubts about his leadership, fell to 42 percent in an Asahi newspaper poll from 48 the previous month. That was down from initial highs above 70 percent after Hatoyama took power last September.

A Yomiuri newspaper survey showed a steeper drop to 45 percent from 56 percent earlier this month.

Prosecutors have arrested three current and former Ozawa aides. Japanese media say they are probing the source of funds improperly reported by Ozawa’s funding group, and suspect construction firms seeking government contracts were involved.

Hatoyama said on Saturday he would back Ozawa’s decision to stay on in his key post and urged him to fight on.

That stance has drawn fire from Japanese media and the opposition as suggesting bias against the prosecutors, but Kyodo news agency said the premier repeated his position on Monday.

PRESSURE TO RESIGN

Equally disturbing for the government, the percentage of those planning to vote for the ruling party in the upper house election fell to 28 percent from 35 percent in the Yomiuri poll.

That compared to 21 percent who said they would opt for the opposition Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), little changed.

But 70 percent of respondents to the Yomiuri survey said Ozawa, who stepped down as party leader last year over a separate scandal, should resign from his No. 2 post.

“We must accept the figures from the polls sincerely,” Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirofumi Hirano told a news conference.

“Parliament opens today and our mission is to enact the extra budget as quickly as possible … and by so doing, realise policies that put priority on the people’s livelihoods.”

The Democrats and their allies could ignore any opposition boycott but doing so could further erode voter support.

The Democrats swept to power in an August election that ended more than half a century of nearly unbroken LDP rule, pledging to refocus spending on consumers and cut wasteful spending to help rein in Japan’s ballooning public debt.

But they need to win an outright majority in parliament’s less powerful upper chamber to break free of two small allies who often disagree on policy and ensure smooth passage of laws.

Day three-party coalition government reached an agreement, differences still remain difficult to anticipate the future

BEIJING, September 10 Xinhua comprehensive Japanese media reported that Japanese democracy, the Social Democratic and People’s New Party on the 9th in the evening to be held in the Congress party’s first talks on a coalition agreement is reached. 16, on behalf of the Democratic Party, Yukio Hatoyama, became prime minister in the Special Congress on the three-party coalition government after the new government will be inaugurated.

The formal agreement the three parties, Hatoyama invited Mizuho Fukushima, the Social Democratic Party, People’s New Party joined the cabinet Shizuka Kamei. In addition to the main cabinet members have already decided, the other members of the Cabinet candidates will also be determined this week in succession.

9, yesterday afternoon held a three-party secretary general-level meeting on the establishment of a joint Government’s basic policy to coordination. Among them, foreign affairs and security issues, taking into account the views of the Social Democratic Party, in the agreement to write a “To alleviate the burden of the people of Okinawa Prefecture will be to amend the” Japan-US Status of Forces Agreement “requirement to re-examine the U.S. military stationed in Japan and the U.S. integration plan and the military bases. ”

Related to the contact within the ruling party coordination mechanisms, the three parties agreed to the establishment of the three party leaders in the Cabinet heads, “the basic policy of the cabinet members of the Committee” by the committee to coordinate policy and to seek the views of the Cabinet meeting to make decisions. “National Strategy Council” will first be set up Democrats constitute a separate, community left the country between the two parties on whether to join future research.

Differences between the ruling coalition more difficult to anticipate the future

Analysis refers to the remaining U.S. military bases in Okinawa, the three parties will eventually be the wording as a “move to re-examine the direction of efforts.” For the Social Democratic Party proposed to re-examine the U.S. Futenma Air Station relocation project, this requirement, the Democratic Party, taking into account the Japanese and U.S. governments had reached an agreement did not accept. Therefore, this is the three-party ruling coalition reached an agreement as soon as possible matters come up with compromise language, whether it will be implemented in the future is still unpredictable.

Reorganization of U.S. forces stationed in Japan issue symbolizes the Democratic Party and the Social Democratic Party in the foreign and security policy differences, which may in the future operation of the coalition government undermines the inconvenience.

The three-party coalition government in the decision-making mechanism on the opposite also exists. Social Democratic Party called for the establishment by the ruling party policy, a consultative body composed of the heads. The Democratic Party will always adhere to a unified decision-making within the government.

Although at present the three parties agreed to establish the party heads, the cabinet, “the basic policy of the cabinet members of the committee” to coordinate on policy, but the Commission and the “National Strategy Council” relationship is not clear. If the agreement still remain in the text, the decision-making mechanism is not clear, the nation’s expectations of the new government could become disappointed.
