Nikai proposes extending LDP president’s maximum time in office to 9 years

Yomiuri ran an interview with LDP Secretary General Nikai, who proposed revising the party rule on the president’s maximum time in office. The current rule limits the party leader to two terms of three years. Nikai is calling for a revision that would allow the leader to be reelected twice for a total of nine years in office. While mentioning the rapid turnover in the nation’s premiership until the early 2010s, Nikai indicated his support for extending Abe’s party presidency to ensure “political stability.”
