Ruling parties agree to open Diet Oct 23-Nov 30

Wednesday 14th October, 10:49 AM JST


The ruling Democratic Party of Japan and its two junior coalition partners agreed Wednesday to call an extraordinary parliamentary session on Oct 23 to run for 39 days through Nov 30, coalition lawmakers said.

Soon after the session opens, Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama will deliver his first speech to both houses of the Diet since assuming office Sept 16 and answer questions from party representatives for the next several days. The DPJ, Social Democratic Party and People’s New Party agreed on the plan on the Diet schedule at a meeting of their Diet affairs chiefs Wednesday morning.
