Mainichi wrote in a front-page story that the Party of Hope is looking to pursue election cooperation with the Japan Innovation Party led by Osaka Governor Matsui since the two parties share many policy goals, such as robust administrative reform, accelerated decentralization, and a streamlined parliamentary system, including reduction in Diet members’ salaries. The two parties may support each other by choosing not to field candidates in the same single-seat districts. According to the article, the Party of Hope plans to announce its policy platform today, with its primary slogan being that the group will strive to be a “pro-reform, benevolent conservative force.”
