Major opposition parties on Wednesday said it was “indiscreet” of Prime Minister Naoto Kan to make comments on the next national election, given his looming resignation.
Liberal Democratic Party Secretary General Nobuteru Ishihara and his counterpart from the New Komeito party, Yoshihisa Inoue, also agreed that Kan has damaged the trust of the opposition parties by poaching an LDP lawmaker this week to his government’s senior post, lawmakers said.
