Several papers front-paged an emerging consensus within the LDP to change the present rule that prohibits its president from serving more than two consecutive three-year terms, noting that it will either allow the party chief to run for up to three consecutive three-year terms or eliminate the restriction completely. Opponents, including former Minister for Regional Revitalization Ishiba, are likely to endorse the change since the new rule will be applied not only to PM Abe but also to his successors.
