 Commenting on rumors about simultaneous House of Representatives and House of Councillors elections this summer, Komeito leader Natsuo Yamaguchi stated on a BS NTV program on Feb. 17: “As the people who will actually have to run the election campaign, we think that with so many things happening, this is not a good idea.”


 Komeito has been negative about holding simultaneous elections. It would appear that Yamaguchi reiterated this position in light of the recent scandals and gaffes involving cabinet ministers.
