 Komeito Policy Research Council Chair Kenichi Ishii indicated at a press conference on July 29 that Komeito will oppose the idea of starting deliberations on a bill to promote the construction of integrated resorts (IRs) focusing on casinos, saying, “We will not respond to deliberations.” Jun Azumi, deputy chair of the Democratic Party of Japan Diet Affairs Committee, expressed the same view as Ishii at a press conference, saying, “The DPJ has no plan to submit a bill to the current session of the Diet.”
