The ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) has decided on changes to the leadership of its Research Commission on the Tax System. It will appoint Yoichi Miyazawa, former chairman of the commission, as chairman of the commission’s subcommittee to handle administrative works under the tax panel’s Chairman Akira Amari. It is unusual for a former chairman to be chosen as a subcommittee chairman. Fukushiro Nukaga, who has been heading the subcommittee, will become an advisor to the commission. Executive Advisor Takeshi Noda and Acting Chairman of Subcommittee Yoshimasa Hayashi will be reappointed. (Abridged)
