Komeito irked by LDP, Ishin cooperation on gambling addiction prevention bill

At a news conference on Nov. 7 Komeito leader Natsuo Yamaguchi commented on moves by the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) to jointly submit a bill on basic policies for gambling addiction prevention with Nippon Ishin [Japan Innovation Party] . He said: “This is a matter that the ruling parties should deal with by continuing to communicate closely,” indicating his displeasure.


The LDP and Komeito jointly submitted a gambling addiction prevention bill at the regular Diet session earlier this year, which was carried over to the subsequent session. However, it was scrapped because the House of Representatives was dissolved in September.
