Upper House member Nakano to return to LDP

Hiromi Yoshida, secretary general of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) caucus in the House of Councillors, announced at a news conference on Oct. 16 that Upper House member Masashi Nakano, leader of the political group “Party for Japanese Kokoro,” had inquired about returning to the LDP.


The LDP will take the necessary procedures and approve Nakano’s membership in time for the extraordinary Diet session to be convened on Oct. 24.


The Party for Japanese Kokoro formed a joint floor group in the Upper House with the LDP in January 2017. It lost the status of a political party after the October 2017 House of Representatives election.
