 Former Finance Minister Fukushiro Nukaga, who heads a faction in the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, expressed his intention on July 31 to support Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s uncontested reelection [third term] in the LDP presidential election scheduled for September. Nukaga pointed out that “the party should pour all its energy into the security legislation as its situation is now stable.” He also said; “There are many issues, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade talks, to address. It would be best to deal with such issues under the Abe administration.” He made the remarks to reporters in Tokyo.
