 Five former Japan Innovation Party members set up a new party and registered it with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Election Administration Commission on Dec. 21.

 

 The “Kaikaku Kesshu no Kai (assembly of reform)” is headed by Toshihide Muraoka, a House of Representatives member from the proportional representation district of the Tohoku region. Former Environment Minister Sakihito Ozawa assists Muraoka as chairman of the party.

 

 Shinji Oguma serves as secretary-general, with Kazuhiko Shigetoku as Diet affairs chairman and Yoshihiro Suzuki as policy chief.

 

 The party pledges to carry out painful reforms including reducing the number of seats in the Diet.
