LDP to propose addition of “Article 9 (2)” to Constitution

Mainichi led with a speculative piece saying that in response to Prime Minister Abe’s instructions to draft a proposal for constitutional revision, the LDP is considering adding “Article 9 (2)” to specify the SDF’s existence. Instead of creating a third paragraph, the ruling party is inclined to draw up a new article so as to retain Article 9 in its entirety with the goal of enlisting support from its junior partner Komeito, which is extremely cautious about altering the war-renouncing article.
