 All papers wrote that Acting DP President Renho has informally decided to run in the party presidential race in September and that she will make an official announcement tomorrow. Renho on Wednesday met former Environment Minister Hosono, who is also viewed as a potential candidate to succeed President Okada, and agreed on the party’s position on future electoral cooperation with other opposition parties. Their agreement is viewed within the largest opposition party as meaning that Renho is willing to reconsider the present leadership’s inclination to deepen collaboration with the Japanese Communist Party.
