Nikai to establish new parliamentary league with former PM Abe as top advisor

Fuji TV reported at noon that LDP Secretary General Nikai will establish as early as next week a new parliamentary league on a free and open Indo-Pacific and have former Prime Minister Abe serve as its top advisor. The network said that since the free and open Indo-Pacific initiative is meant to counter China’s Belt and Road, some senior LDP members are expressing surprise that pro-China Nikai decided to set up such a league. The network added that there is a growing move among LDP heavyweights to establish a new parliamentary league, saying that some view the move as a struggle for leadership within the party ahead of the Lower House elections and the LDP presidential election in the fall.
