Nippon Ishin votes against opposition’s motion of no confidence on the cabinet

Nippon Ishin [Japan Innovation Party] voted with the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and Komeito on Dec. 14 against the motion of no confidence on the cabinet submitted to the House of Representatives by the Democratic Party (DP), the Japanese Communist Party, the Liberal Party, and the Social Democratic Party, calling this an act of “grandstanding in disregard of the people’s interest.” This party has been distancing itself from the four opposition parties in the current Diet session. It sided with the ruling parties on the no-confidence motion.


Ishin also voted with the LDP and Komeito against another motion of no confidence on House of Councillors President Chuichi Date submitted by the DP earlier in the day. It had also voted with the ruling parties in the current Diet session for the TPP ratification bill and the pension system reform bill, on which the ruling and opposition parties clashed fiercely.
