All national papers took up remarks made to the press yesterday by newly selected Japanese Trade Union Confederation (Rengo) President Yoshino Tomoko regarding the upcoming general election. On the agreement forged between the Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan (CDPJ), which Rengo supports, and the Japanese Communist Party (JCP) in which the latter offers “limited cooperation from outside the cabinet” in the event that the opposition camp unseats the ruling coalition, Yoshino said: “Our organization has been saying that such cooperation is impossible.” Rengo and the JCP have long been at odds over how to organize labor movements. The Rengo leader expressed hope for a merger between the CDPJ and the People’s Democratic Party.
