Nikkei and Mainichi reported that LDP Diet affairs chief Takagi met with his CDPJ counterpart Mabuchi on Monday and withdrew the plan to deliver a parliamentary speech for former Prime Minister Abe during the extraordinary Diet session to be convened on Aug. 3. Takagi reportedly proposed that the memorial speech be delivered at the next extraordinary Diet session in the fall and Mabuchi agreed. Mainichi said the two lawmakers also agreed to convene a three-day extraordinary Diet session this month and hold a question-and-answer session on the GOJ’s decision to hold a state funeral for Abe when the Diet is not in session.
