Asahi reported on remarks made to the press on Tuesday by LDP General Council Chairman Sato suggesting that the ruling party needs to rework the legislation on promoting understanding of LGBT people since it is clear that conservative party lawmakers will not endorse the original bill. The politician underscored that enactment will require modification of the draft language.


In a related story, Asahi focused on a tweet posted on June 4 by British Ambassador to Japan Longbottom saying in Japanese that political leadership is indispensable to creating a society where everyone can live freely irrespective of his or her sexual orientation or sexual identity. The UK diplomat reportedly told the daily in writing yesterday that her message was intended to help Japanese people take action toward building such a society.
