Data Sheet: Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
China News Service, February 15th According to the Kyodo News Agency, the Japanese government of the Shinzo Abe is stepping up preparations in order to try to amend the constitutional interpretation and lift the ban on collective self-defense during the current session of the National Assembly. The Japanese government will draft a draft bill to discuss with the Komeito Party and submit it to the current Congress, which is scheduled to end on June 22. The announcement of a revision of the constitutional interpretation and the lifting of the right to collective self-defense may take the form of Abe’s decision in the parliamentary defense or cabinet meeting.
The report pointed out that in order to make the “Japan-US Defense Cooperation Guidelines”, which stipulates the division of responsibility between the Japanese Self-Defense Force and the US military, can be revised within the year, Abe will hold a positive attitude toward the lifting of the collective self-defense rights of the Japanese Reform Society and everyone. The party called “Responsible opposition party”, sent Qiu Bo. However, the ruling party, the Komeito Party, still has a cautious stance on lifting the ban on collective self-defense rights, and the ruling party has also raised concerns about Abe’s “being a sneak peek”.
At the end of last year, Abe said to his cronies: “Japan has been moving in the wrong direction after the war. The trend must be changed somewhere. & rdquo; He stressed that lifting the ban on collective self-defense is the first step to achieve “get rid of the post-war system”. For Abe, the next goal after lifting the ban on collective self-defense is to modify the constitution with the covetment.
Abe plans to accept the report “A discussion on the legal basis for rebuilding security” in April after the 2014 budget was established. According to the report’s proposal to lift the ban on collective self-defense, the Japanese government will draw up a draft bill to discuss with the Komeito Party and submit it to the current Congress, which is scheduled to end on June 22. The announcement of a revision of the constitutional interpretation and the lifting of the right to collective self-defense may take the form of Abe’s decision in the parliamentary defense or cabinet meeting.
The reason why the Abe government is eager to lift the ban on collective self-defense is to end the problem of disagreement as soon as possible in the favorable circumstances of the economic situation. If Abe does not dissolve the House of Representatives, although there will be no congressional elections before the 2016 Senate elections, Abe believes that it is not rich in time, considering that the Self-Defense Forces Act needs to be amended after the lifting of the collective self-defense rights.
However, due to the rush to establish the “Specific Secret Protection Act” in December last year, the cabinet’s support rate dropped sharply. Some people inside the government believe that insisting on amending the constitutional interpretation will cause fatal injuries and should be handled with caution. There have been concerns in the Liberal Democratic Party that the government’s arbitrary revision of the constitutional interpretation will undermine the stability of the constitution. Koizumi Ichiro, the cabinet legal director in charge of the government’s constitutional interpretation, was hospitalized for health problems in late January this year, which also constituted an unstable factor.
Abe’s party’s party, Watanabe, who is interested in similar ideas, has conducted policy consultations on issues such as lifting the ban on collective self-defense. He also repeatedly expressed his hope that the Japanese Reform Association will provide cooperation.
On the other hand, Najin, the leader of the Komeito Party, said that the Constitution is the highest norm of the country. It is not easy to amend the constitutional interpretation, and “must take a cautious attitude”. The link between the party, the Communist Party, the Life Party and the Social Democratic Party also explicitly opposed the lifting of the right to collective self-defense. The confrontation between the ruling and opposition parties is inevitable.
