NHK reported that PM Abe said at a Lower House Budget Committee session today that he is “not thinking at all” about dissolving the Lower House, while he also said his right to dissolve the Lower House will not be constrained even before the review of Lower House electoral constituencies expected by next May. The network said the premier made this comment in response to a question by DP lawmaker Yuichi Goto, who pointed out that any dissolution of the Lower House prior to electoral district reform would represent a state of unconstitutionality.
