Yomiuri and Mainichi took note of the growing distance between the Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan and the Japanese Communist Party, focusing on the disclosure by CDPJ Diet Affairs Committee Chairman Mabuchi on Wednesday that he will no longer hold regular talks with his JCP counterpart. The largest opposition party led by President Izumi is apparently inclined to keep its distance from the Communist Party, with Mabuchi saying: “We will deal with the Kishida administration while proposing policy alternatives and cooperating if necessary. We must reconsider the role of an opposition party.” According to the articles, the Diet affairs committee chiefs of the CDPJ, the JCP, the Democratic Party for the People, and the Social Democratic Party met every Wednesday to coordinate their approaches toward the LDP administrations until before the general election on Oct. 31.
