 The Party for Future Generations decided on November 11 to appoint Masashi Nakano, Diet affairs chairman, to concurrently serve as secretary-general. Masamune Wada, who currently doubles as policy chief and secretary-general, will be dismissed as secretary-general on November 16.

 

 Nakano is a House of Councillors member. The party has selected him in preparation for next summer’s Upper House elections.

 

 Meanwhile, the party name will remain the same. Party leader Kyoko Nakayama had been looking into the possibility of changing the name, but she gave up on the idea due to strong opposition.
