Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) Secretary General Toshihiro Nikai met with Komeito Secretary General Tetsuo Saito on May 12. Nikai presented a document stating that the LDP discussed the possibility of postponing local elections due to the coronavirus outbreak but “came to the conclusion that it would be difficult.” The two senior officials agreed, however, that the extension of the terms of local assembly members under the state of emergency “continues to be an important issue that need to be considered” along with the extension of the terms of Diet members.
