The first diet debate between party leaders in three years will take place on June 19

The ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and the main opposition Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan (CDP) have agreed to hold a parliamentary debate between political party leaders next Wednesday for the first time in about three years.

The debate will be the first for Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, who is also president of the LDP, and CDP leader Kenta Izumi. Other participants include Nippon Ishin no Kai leader Nobuyuki Baba, Japanese Communist Party head Tomoko Tamura, and People’s Democratic Party head Yuichiro Tamaki.

Also on Wednesday, a bill to revise the Law on the Control of Political Funds is expected to be passed following the LDP’s “slush fund” scandal, while the opposition camp files a vote of no confidence against the Kishida cabinet. The session of parliament ends on June 23.
