  • Japan's calorie-based food self-sufficiency rate, which was over 70% in the 1960s, has dropped to 37% by 2020. The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries has set a goal of increasing the calorie-based food self-sufficiency rate to 45% by Fiscal Year 2030.
    Do you consider this target sufficient? If not, what’s the target number you propose?
    ばつ
    補足説明

    [If choosing NO, what’s the target number you propose?]
    50%
    [Explanation]
    The root cause of the decline in the food self-sufficiency rate is the weakening of the production base, such as the decrease in the number of farmers and the decrease in the area of farmland. The cause is the decline in farmers' income. In particular, with regard to rice, since prices have fallen due to a decline in demand, leading to a decrease in farmers' income, the government must revive the supply-demand adjustment and the individual household income compensation system, and legislate them. This will foster the development of farmers and the continuation of farming operations, thereby realizing a food self-sufficiency rate of 50%. The Democratic Party for the People believes that "comprehensive economic security" including food is necessary, so we have submitted a bill in the ordinary Diet session.

  • Many of the food additives that are currently approved for use in Japan have been banned or restricted in other countries due to their reported risks.
    Do you think the current regulations on food additives are sufficient?

  • In Japan, children of foreign nationality are excluded from compulsory education and cannot receive education unless they request. There is concern some of such children may not be enrolled in elementary and junior high school, which are mandatory for Japanese citizens.

And we need to establish a system that can secure a budget to establish these educational systems and reduce the burden on parents.

  • Japan’s government expenditures on culture and the arts account for only 0.11% of the national budget, excluding the Covid-19 response budget. This is about one tenth of that of South Korea and far less than that of Germany, France, and other countries.

    Will you improve these standards of childcare workers placement ratio? If so, please specify how much?
    まる
    補足説明

    [The ratio] We are not going to set a specific target, but it is essential to steadily raise wages every year.

  • There is concern that if the global temperature rise 1.5°C above, climate disasters, water shortages, and food problems will become even more serious and critical. However, if the current situation remains unchanged, the global temperature is expected to reach 2.7°C above by 2100, and efforts are required from each country to achieve the "Paris Agreement 1.5°C goal" to limit the temperature increase to 1.5°C. The Japanese government's greenhouse gas emission reduction target is "46-50% reduction compared to 2013 levels by 2030," but this is considered to be an inadequate level that does not align with the 1.5°C goal.
    Will you raise the target number of greenhouse gas emission reduction level to 62% that aligns with the Paris Agreement 1.5°C limit?
    -
    補足説明

    (Other) In order to achieve a carbon-neutral society by 2050 and promote the "Paris Agreement," we will aim for a significant reduction of CO2 emissions. It is essential that targets be realistic and feasible.

  • At the COP26 meeting held in Glasgow last year, all participating countries agreed to reduce coal-fired power generation, which is the largest source of CO2 emissions. In order to achieve the "Paris Agreement 1.5°C limit", developed countries must reduce coal-fired power generation to zero by 2030, but the Japanese government has set the target number of coal-fired power generation to 19% by 2030.
    Will you reduce domestic coal power to zero by 2030?
    -
    補足説明

    (Other) For resource-limited Japan, it is an extremely important issue to secure safe, stable, and inexpensive energy sources, such as by improving energy self-sufficiency. We will focus on energy security, including ensuring a stable energy supply, and aim for a carbon-neutral society while achieving a solid energy supply system. We must position coal-fired power as a buffer for electricity supply and renewable energy. We will promote a realistic energy policy while taking measures such as hydrogen and ammonia co-firing.

  • As each prefecture’s minimum wage varies, there is the gap of 221 YEN between the highest and the lowest minimum wages. Estimates also suggest that about 1,500 yen per hour is actually needed as living wage.
    Will you raise the minimum hourly wage to 1,500 yen nation-wide?
    ばつ
    補足説明

    We will raise the minimum wage and achieve "over 1,150 yen per hour anywhere in Japan" as soon as possible. To do this, we will strengthen support for small and medium-sized businesses. It is essential to steadily raise the minimum wage while seeking a feasible level.

  • Introduction of selective dual surname system for married couples is being discussed in order to eliminate unwanted surname changes and unwilling De Facto marriages. Will you introduce the option of selective dual surnames for married couples,
    which would allow both couples to maintain their surnames in the family register and still be married? If so, by when do you aim to introduce the change?
    まる
    補足説明

    We will introduce the selective dual surname system for married couples. We will aim for a society that accepts diverse forms of families. We will ratify the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women and aim to revise the Family Registration Law, which discriminates against children born out of wedlock.

  • The Act on Promotion of Gender Equality in the Political Field requires each party to make efforts to have equal numbers of candidates of men and women, but actual efforts are left solely to the discretion of each party.
    Wil you make it mandatory for each party to disclose the target ratio of women in its candidate pool?

  • The amount of Livelihood Assistance, which is used for the living cost such as clothes or utility bills out of Livelihood protection benefits, has been gradually reduced since 2013.
    Will you bring this back up to the previous amount that was set before 2013?
    -
    補足説明

    (Other) There are many cases where poverty leads to life-threatening and dangerous conditions. We will make the requirements for eligibility for welfare benefits easy to understand, appropriately grant eligibility when the requirements are met, and take action to ensure that situations are not left unattended where people do not receive benefits despite their eligibility.

  • Will you enact an "LGBT Equality Law" that explicitly prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity?

    補足説明

    In the current session of the Diet, We the Democratic Party for the People support and plan to co-submit the legislative bill, "LGBT Discrimination Elimination Bill".

  • Will you legislate same-sex marriage?
    まる
    補足説明

    Same-sex marriage is recognized in 29 countries and regions around the world. And Japan is the only country in the G7 that doesn’t have a law guaranteeing same-sex partnership. We will promote the legislation to resolve issues related to sexual orientation and gender identity, such as considering the expansion and legislation of the partnership system and easing the requirements for changing family registers.

  • The Gender Identity Disorder Special Cases Act allows a transgender individual to change their sex recognized by law. However, WHO's ICD-11, released in 2019, no longer lists "gender identity disorder" and introduces a new term called "Gender Incongruence" in the category of conditions related to sexual health. In addition, the Gender Identity Disorder Special Cases Act stipulates that one does not have minor child, is not married, and will undergo sex-reassignment surgery. This sets extremely high barriers and some of requirements are considered as human rights violations internationally.
    Will you amend the Gender Identity Disorder Special Cases Act to ease the requirements?
    -
    補足説明

    (Other) In order to create a society where lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders, and other "sexual minorities" are not discriminated against, we have submitted the "bill on Promotion of Elimination of Discrimination on the Basis of Sexual Orientation or Gender Identity” that includes measures to prevent discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. We will work for the enactment of this bill. We will work with support groups to eliminate discrimination, prejudice, and harassment based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

  • Will you reduce or abolish the consumption tax?
    まる
    補足説明

    We will reduce consumption tax from 10% to 5% until the rate of wage increase reaches price +2% in order to prevent the economy from falling into stagflation, in which prices rise and the economy stagnates.

  • There is concern that the implementation of the Invoice System will increase the financial and administrative burden on many businesses, including freelancers and small and medium-size businesses, and that it will prevent young talent from emerging.
    Will you terminate or abolish the implementation of the Invoice System?
    まる
    補足説明

    We will not introduce the Japanese Invoice System, taking into account the burden on small and medium-sized businesses.

  • The effective corporate tax rate has been reduced every year since 1984. Especially since 2015, expecting to see the increase of salaries and business investment, the effective corporate tax rate was further decreased, but such redistribution did not happen. Some argues that the effective corporate tax rate should be raised.
    What percentage do you think is appropriate for the effective corporate tax rate?
    -
    補足説明

    [Answer] We do not have a specific target rate at this time, but it should be higher than the current rate.
    [Explanation]
    When we are raising the minimum wages, we will support this through property tax and consumption tax reductions as well as corporate tax reductions.

  • Do you think that the government should investigate and disclose the detailed use of the "Covid-19 Contingency funds" of over 11 trillion yen, the final use of which has not been precisely identified?
    まる
    補足説明

    A reserve fund was used to finance the FY2022 supplementary budget, and an additional reserve fund was appropriated to cover the decrease in the reserve fund. In light of the possibility that new measures will be required in the future as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds and the situation in Ukraine progresses, there is a certain rationality to this measure. However, from the perspective of budget transparency and fiscal democracy, we believe that there are many issues to be addressed in the management of the reserve fund.

  • The government guideline says that it will encourage people to obtain “Maina Insurance Card”, which integrates the Individual Number (My Number) card and the health insurance card, and in the future aims to abolish the current health insurance card. There are various concerns such as leakage of personally identifiable information and confusion in the medical field.
    Do you support that promotes Maina Insurance Card and the abolition of the current health insurance card in tandem?
    -
    補足説明

    (Other) When using the system in fields other than the three areas of social security, tax, and disaster countermeasures stipulated in the current My Number Law, only items that guarantee the security, administrative efficiency, and convenience in people's lives should be considered, on the premise that careful explanation to the public and consensus-building are required.

  • Do you think that the government has sufficiently provided apology and compensation to the victims of forced sterilization under the former eugenic law to remedy their human rights violation?
    ばつ
    補足説明

    The plaintiffs and other affected parties are aging. In addition to legal compensation, we believe that a solution to the Eugenic Protection Law issue, such as the elimination of discrimination, is urgently needed. A political solution is needed as soon as possible. We the Democratic Party for the People will do our utmost to achieve a full resolution of the Eugenic Protection Law issue.

  • In recent years, discrimination agitation groups and online hate speech (discrimination incitement) have become more serious problems, and the Anti-Hate Speech Act was passed in 2016. However, discriminatory demonstrations and propaganda activities by xenophobic groups continue to this day, and discrimination against foreign residents and discrimination in employment have not disappeared.
    Do you agree with the swift enactment of the "Basic Law for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination" with penalties?
    -
    補足説明

    (Other) We will further develop the Anti-Hate Speech Law and enact a law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, origin, etc.

  • In Japan’s Control Immigration Centers, foreign nationals, whose residency permit has been revoked but who have family in Japan or who cannot return home due to war or civil unrest in their country of nationality, are detained, sometimes for long periods of time, according to unclear criteria. Serious incidents and accidents are constantly occurring at these facilities, including deaths of detainees left without proper medical care.
    Will you stop Immigration Control Centers’ long-term/indefinite detention that usually followed by deportation, and under certain conditions, will you issue a residency permit to the foreign citizens who stay in Japan due to the circumstances that prohibit them from returning to their home country?
    -
    補足説明

    (Other) International agreements on immigration clearly state that "detention shall be for the shortest possible time. The reason for long-term detention is that the requirements for special permission for residence are not clearly defined and that refugee applicants are not given the opportunity to state their opinions because they are not subject to the Administrative Procedure Act or the Administrative Appeal Act. Applicants who are not satisfied with adverse dispositions without an opportunity to state their opinions will refuse to leave the country, which we believe leads to long-term detention in Japan, where the "principle of detention" is applied. Therefore, we must clarify the criteria for refugee status and improve related laws concerning refugee status procedures.

  • The current Technical Intern Training Program for foreign nationals is barely protecting basic human rights as 70% of the participating workplaces violate the Labor Standard Law and so many cases of prohibiting pregnancy or marriage are reported, Will you abolish the Technical Intern Program for Foreign Nationals?
    -
    補足説明

    (Other) In order to achieve a vibrant Japanese society, foreign workers are necessary, and it is a prerequisite that they are able to fully demonstrate their abilities and promote cooperation and coexistence with the Japanese people in local communities and in their daily lives. We urge the government to urgently reconsider the ideal way of accepting foreign workers, not only the Specified Skills system but also the appropriate treatment of foreign workers.

  • The age of consent is the minimum age at which a person is considered capable of consenting to sexual intercourse. The age of consent in Japan has never been revised since it was established in the Penal Code during the Meiji era, and is lower compared to other countries.
    Will you raise the age of consent from 13 years old to 16 years old?
    まる
    補足説明

    Based on the principle of "human security," we will work on the protection of human rights, gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls, and the building of an inclusive and just society.

  • Under the current Penal Code, forced intercourse cannot be considered as a crime unless assault, intimidation, or the victim’s inability to resist is proven, but in many cases, it is difficult to prove that the victim "desperately resisted," so the damage is not recognized as damage.
    Will you revise the current Penal Code by eliminating the requirements of assault, intimidation and inability to resist from Articles 177 and 178 of the Penal Code, and make non-consensual sexual intercourses, including intercourse with a person who engages involuntarily and intercourse that takes advantage of the situation where the victim has difficulty in forming, expressing, o pursuing their consent or non-consent, punishable?
    -
    補足説明

    (Other) Based on the principle of "human security," we will work on the protection of human rights, gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls, and the building of an inclusive and just society. We believe that we must discuss the composition of legal requirements and issues for the establishment of such crimes.

  • The statute of limitations for the crime of forcible sexual intercourse is 10 years and for the crime of forcible indecency 7 years. In many cases, the statute of limitation expires before the victims becomes aware that they have been victimized, resulting unrecognized cases.
    Will you abolish the statute of limitations for crimes of forcible sexual intercourse and forcible indecency?
    -
    補足説明

    (Other) We believe that the abolishment is an important policy issue. We will request the revision of the Penal Code so that only "non-consent" from the other party is required for sexual violence victimization, and "assaults", "intimidation", "physical and mental loss", and "inability to resist" will be removed from requirements for the crime. We also call for heavier penalties for highly malicious sex crimes against persons with disabilities, forced sexual acts using their status or relationship, and sex crimes using drugs, etc. We will reform the Penal Code based on the voices of victims and support groups, such as expanding the scope of application of the crime of sexual intercourse by a guardian, raising the age of consent for sexual intercourse, etc.

  • Do you believe that there is an urgent issue that requires a constitutional amendment, not a legal amendment? If so, please specify what they are.
    まる
    補足説明

    We do not believe that there are pressing issues on which a consensus of the people can be formed. We will promote constructive discussions without stagnating on the dualism of constitutional protection and revision. In particular, we should create a state-of-emergency clause to prevent the executive power from becoming bloated in emergency situations. In light of the fact that economic freedom, freedom of business, and freedom of movement were easily restricted during the COVID-19 pandemic without adequate economic compensation, we must examine the powers of the government, the powers of Congress, etc. in a state of emergency.

  • With Japan's defense expenditures at a record high for eight consecutive years, there is a debate about further doubling the defense budget. At the same time, however, there is no clear funding source, and there is concern that taxes will be raised to pay and social security spending will be cut for the increased defense spending.
    Will you continue increasing defense spending?
    -
    補足説明

    (Other) In order to cope with advances in defense technology and new areas such as cyber, space, electromagnetic waves, etc., we will increase necessary defense expenditures while maintaining an exclusively defense-oriented policy.

  • For the first time since the end of World War II, the government is mulling the "enemy base attack capability," which would allow Japan to broadly attack missile bases and other military bases in the territory of other countries. This capability would enable Japan to attack other countries without a direct attack on Japan.
    Do you agree with the possession of the "enemy base attack capability" as currently being discussed?
    -
    補足説明

    (Other) Based on the principle of "Protecting one's own country by oneself," we aim for an independent security system. In a drastically changing security environment, further stabilizing and strengthening the Japan-U.S. security system is essential not only for the security of Japan but also for peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region. We will firmly maintain and strengthen the Japan-U.S. alliance, which is the cornerstone of Japan's diplomacy and security. We must fully discuss the contents of Article 3, Paragraphs 2-4 of the Armed Attack Situation Response Act.

  • Do you aim to participate the Treaty on the prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in the future?
    まる
    補足説明

    With regard to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, we will work toward Japan's signature and ratification of the treaty and will participate as an observer in the Conference of the Parties to the treaty to be held after the treaty enters into force, and will work for the abolition of nuclear weapons as a viable bridge between the nuclear-weapon states and non-nuclear-weapon states, which is the goal of the government.

  • In response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine, there has been discussion that Japan should also start nuclear sharing. Do you agree that Japan should start nuclear sharing?
    -
    補足説明

    (Other) In a drastically changing security environment, further stabilizing and strengthening the Japan-U.S. security system is essential not only for the security of Japan but also for peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region. We will firmly maintain and strengthen the Japan-U.S. alliance, which is the cornerstone of Japan's diplomacy and security. In order to enhance the credibility of deterrence under the “nuclear umbrella”, we will make the "Japan-U.S. Extended Deterrence Dialogue" a ministerial-level meeting.

  • Regarding the relief for those who were exposed to the "black rain" containing radioactive materials that fell immediately after the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, the government recognized those who were outside the relief area as Hibakusha and made them eligible for the issuance of the Hibakusha Health Certificate.
    Will those who were exposed to the "black rain" in Nagasaki be included in the Hibakusha Health Handbook?
    -
    補足説明

    (Other) The relief is an issue that we should consider. We will sincerely listen to the opinions of the Hibakusha, their families, and those who support them, and consider further enhancing Hibakusha relief measures and resolving various pending issues, such as delays in relief measures due to delays in the recognition of A-bomb diseases.

  • Will you commit to safe decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, and shut down all the nuclear power plants by 2030 and decommission them all one by one?
    ばつ
    補足説明

    (Other) On the premise of securing alternative energy sources to nuclear energy, saving energy, and creating an environment for stable use of renewable energy, we are required to reduce dependence on nuclear energy in the mid-to-long term and ultimately aim for a society that does not depend on nuclear energy. Until an alternative energy source to nuclear energy is established, we will position existing nuclear energy as an important option in Japan's power supply infrastructure, and based on the lessons learned from the accident at TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi NPS, we will use nuclear energy for the time being based on the following principles: 1) Strictly apply the 40-year operation limit system. (2) Allow nuclear power plants that meet safety standards based on laws and regulations, and for which evacuation plans have been prepared and local consent obtained, to operate. (3) Don't build any additional nuclear power plants. (4) Secure and utilize every possible means to achieve a carbon-neutral society.

  • Do you agree with releasing contaminated water generated from Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear into the ocean?
    -
    補足説明

    (Other) Reconstruction and revitalization of Fukushima will remain the most important issue, and we will devote all policy measures to advance decommissioning, etc. of TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi NPP toward both "reconstruction and decommissioning". We will take specific measures regarding the handling of ALPS-treated water. We will do our utmost to address the many issues left behind by the Great East Japan Earthquake, including thorough measures against reputational damages, prompt compensation, and reconstruction and industrial development in the affected areas.

  • Under the current Act on Support for Reconstructing Livelihoods of Disaster Victims, 3 million yen will be provided at maximum, depending on the extent of damage and how the house is reconstructed. However, it has been pointed out that this amount is insufficient to rebuild livelihoods if one loses their house and their job.
    Do you think that the current maximum amount of 3 million yen for Support Grants for Reconstructing Livelihoods of Disaster Victims is sufficient? If this is not sufficient, please specify the appropriate amount?
    ばつ
    補足説明

    [The appropriate amount]
    5 million yen
    [Explanation]
    More than 20 years have passed since the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake and several years have passed since the Great East Japan Earthquake. While reviewing the status of the government's disaster countermeasures efforts during this period, we will review and revise the legal system of our country. With the Kumamoto earthquake, frequent volcanic disasters, floods, and other disasters in mind, we will comprehensively review the Basic Act on Disaster Countermeasures, the Disaster Relief Act, and the Act on Support for Reconstructing Livelihoods of Disaster Victims to enhance their effectiveness in protecting the lives and livelihoods of the people.
