Diet session to be extended

Mainichi wrote that the Abe administration and the ruling coalition have informally decided to extend the present Diet session by about 10 days through late June to ensure the enactment of the anti-conspiracy bill, as the opposition block is set to up the ante to derail the controversial legislation by submitting a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Abe and a censure motion against Justice Minister Kaneda. The Kantei is cautious about extending the Diet term through July or beyond out of fear that the opposition will step up its criticism of the administration over the Kake Educational Institution scandal. Sankei ran a similar story, adding that the session may be extended by about two weeks.
