A top Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) official has revealed that the LDP has started making arrangements for an extraordinary session of the Diet to be convened on Sept. 16. The extraordinary session will be held for three days, during which time the new prime minister will be designated in plenary sessions of the Upper and Lower Houses. The LDP reportedly had considered Sept. 17 as a date, but will convene the session one day earlier with the cooperation of the opposition parties.

 

The LDP will arrange the schedule so that an announcement for the LDP presidential election will be made in early September and voting will take place on Sept. 14, according to the LDP official.
