LDP sets sights on retaking power from the ruling DPJ

Date Posted: 2012-01-28

The primary opposition political party in Japan, the Liberal Democratic Party, is committed to recapturing power from the ruling Democratic Party of Japan.

LDP Chief Sadakazu Tanigaki used the political party’s 79th annual convention in Tokyo as the forum to making the declaration, telling the gathering the LDP will continue pressing Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda to dissolve the Lower House of the Diet and hold new general election. Tanigaki is calling the DPJ government “bogus”, saying the country needs to have the LDP back in power.

He called the Democratic Party of Japan “Liars and fraudsters’, and said the DPJ has repeatedly broken one promise after another in its 2009 election manifesto. He’s also critical of the way the DPJ-led government has handled the Fukushima nuclear crisis, accusing both Naoto Kan and Yoshihiko Noda cabinets of lacking effective and rapid-response crisis control capabilities.

The new Diet session opens on Tuesday.
