TBS reported at noon that Defense Minister Kono’s recent remark at an online seminar organized by a U.S. think tank that there will probably be a dissolution of the Lower House for a snap election “sometime in October” is creating a stir within the government and the ruling camp. The network said that although there are growing calls within the LDP for an early snap general election in light of strong public support for the LDP in the latest opinion polls, senior members of the government are reacting coolly to the cabinet member’s remark on a snap election by saying that “the next prime minister will decide when to dissolve” the Lower House.
