Talks between the parties on shrinking the imperial family could start next week

Speaker of the House of Representatives Fukushiro Nukaga said he hopes talks between the parties on proposals to secure a sufficient number of imperial relatives will take place as early as next week, according to senior officials from ruling and opposition parties.

Nukaga made the wish known when he met with senior officials at the official residence of the Speaker of the House on Tuesday evening.

Discussions between the parties are likely to focus on the two proposals presented by a panel of government experts in 2021 to allow female members to retain their imperial family status after marriage and to allow male members in the paternal line of former imperial to have family branches adopted into the imperial family. family.

The ruling Liberal Democratic Party has already submitted its views to Nukaga and House of Councilors Speaker Hidehisa Otsuji, supporting the two proposals as “necessary.”
