It is true that Japan has suffered certain changes and the opposition has grown. For this reason, we have titled this article: “The Japanese elections 2021“.
We confirm that the Japanese authorities indicated that the elections to the Upper House were on 21 July. They announced it after the opposition announced that they will present a motion of censure. Obviously, they are against the government of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
Also, Abe could call early elections for the House of Representatives. He wants that the Lower House elections coincide with the triennial elections for the Upper House.
In the first moment, the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) coalition expects to maintain its majority in the Upper House even if its presence reduces.
Certainly, on June 22, the leader of the Democratic Constitutional Party of Japan (PDCJ), Yukio Edano, reached an agreement with the other opposition parties. They want to file a motion of censure against the prime minister’s government.
The PDCJ has explained that the aim is to stage the political confrontation of the opposition against the government with a motion. They will try to present it this Monday, July 1, in the House of Representatives, the Japanese Parliament, etc.
When will the general elections 2021 be held?
It is programmed that the next elections will be held on 22 October 2021. It will be this date unless they call a snap election.
Definitely, Japan is in a difficult situation, since there is a great diversity of opinions.
We will keep you informed about the news of the Japanese elections 2021.
Finally, we want to clarify that this situation does not affect tourism and if you want to travel to the country you will still need a Japanese tourist visa.
