NHK reported that the House of Representatives passed the 107-trillion-yen budget bill for FY2022 this afternoon with the backing of not only the ruling LDP and the Komeito party but also the opposition People’s Democratic Party, noting that it is extremely unusual for an opposition party to endorse the GOJ’s budget legislation. The bill, which has been sent to the House of Councillors for further deliberation, will be enacted automatically by the end of next month due to a constitutional clause even if the upper chamber elects not to vote on it.
