 The secretaries general and Diet Affairs Committee chairs of the Liberal Democratic Party and Komeito met in Tokyo on April 22 and agreed to start Diet deliberation on the security legislations at a plenary session of the House of Representatives on May 19, where Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will give an explanation on the objectives of these bills. The government and the ruling parties are planning to submit the relevant bills to the Diet around May 15.

 

 Democratic Party of Japan Diet affairs chief Jun Azumi stated at a news conference on April 22 that it is outrageous to start deliberations the week after the bills are submitted. There is a possibility that the start of Diet debate may be delayed until May 21 or later.

 

 The government and the ruling parties are planning to substantially extend the current Diet session adjourning on June 24 in order to pass the bills during this session.
