Nippon Ishin’s Matsui denies option of cooperation with ruling camp

“We will never join the ruling camp of the LDP and Komeito. No matter what the results of the election are, we will stay in the opposition camp,” said Nippon Ishin no Kai (Japan Innovation Party) representative and Osaka Mayor Matsui Ichiro to reporters regarding the party’s possible cooperation with the LDP and the Komeito in the event that the latter two parties win the next general election.
