 Speaking at a press conference on Nov. 5 about cooperation among opposition parties in the House of Councillors election next summer, Japanese Communist Party Chairman Kazuo Shii said: “There is a strong possibility that we will jointly field candidates who do not belong to any political party.” He made this comment in response to a question about the possibility of fielding candidates from a private-sector organization that is opposed to the security laws.
