Asahi and Nikkei wrote that DP Acting President Renho appears to be the only strong candidate for the DP presidential election in September since no rival candidate has emerged yet. Although former FM Maehara has been lobbying hard to enlist support for his possible candidacy on a conservative policy platform, Renho has been collecting support from across the political spectrum within the largest opposition party. The dailies said some 20 DP Diet members who used to belong to the Japan Innovation Party will perhaps hold the key to preventing the presidential election from becoming a “one-woman” race.
