TBS reported that Keidanren chief Tokura released a comment today welcoming the results of the Lower House election on Sunday. “I strongly welcome the fact that the LDP secured an absolute majority and the LDP and the Komeito maintained a robust and stable government,” he reportedly said. “The results of this election show that the voters gave high marks to the policies of the Kishida administration and expect it to lead Japan toward a powerful revival in the new post-COVID era.” Meanwhile, Keizai Doyukai chief Sakurada released a comment saying: “I welcome Prime Minister Kishida’s  continued efforts to realize a new form of capitalism…. This is the last chance for Japan to turn around the stagnation it has experienced for years. Based on that understanding, the ruling parties should lead a robust policy debate from a mid- to long-term perspective.” In addition,  Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chairman Mimura released a comment saying: “Although the LDP lost some seats, the fact that the LDP achieved an absolute stable majority reflects the voters’ approval of its stable political management despite various issues amid the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis and their expectations for new growth.”
