Yamaguchi’s term as Komeito leader could be extended

The term of Natsuo Yamaguchi, 71, as leader of Komeito, the ruling Liberal Democratic Party’s coalition partner, could be extended given the possibility that the next general election will be held this fall, party sources said Thursday.

Yamaguchi’s current term expires at a party convention in September, but there is a proposal to postpone the party convention until after the next general election, the sources said.

In a radio program on Wednesday, Yamaguchi mentioned a possible dissolution of the House of Representatives, the all-important lower house of the Diet, after the LDP leadership elections in September.
