Issues concerning obscene remarks directed at women and hacked e-mail messages of the two candidates led to slanging matches and blew away other important issues on the national and international agendas that needed to be debated. However, what seemed like a frivolous parody was, in fact, a real election. The question of what democracy was all about weighed heavily on the minds of many Americans as well as people around the world. On the other hand, there is a view that the outcome was the result of democracy working just fine. Those taking this perspective feel that the people decrying the results are only members of the elite and establishment in U.S. society, such as politicians, mainstream media commentators and corporation bigwigs, who are out of touch with what ordinary people are thinking.

Party for Japanese Kokoro

, lit. The party that cares for Japan's heart) is a Japanese political party. It was formed as the Party for Future Generations (次世代の党, Jisedai no Tō?) Japan Innovation Party. History[edit] When it was founded, the Japan Innovation Party was led by Kenji Eda and Osaka city mayor Tōru Hashimoto.

Japan Innovation Party

In December 2014 Hashimoto resigned from the role in order to focus on the mayoral election scheduled for the spring of 2015. Eda remained as sole leader of the party.[4] Following the defeat of the Osaka Metropolis plan in an Osaka city referendum in May 2015, Eda resigned as leader and former Democratic Party of Japan member Yorihisa Matsuno was elected as his replacement.[5] In October 2015 a faction aligned with Hashimoto split from the party to form the Initiatives from Osaka.[6] Then, in late October, another four members left after expressing dissatisfaction with Matsuno's leadership; the group went on to form the Vision of Reform in December 2015.[7] Initiatives from Osaka. Initiatives from Osaka (おおさか維新の会, Ōsaka ishin no kai?) Is a Japanese political party that was formed in October 2015.[1] by Osaka governor Ichiro Matsui and then-Osaka mayor Toru Hashimoto after they and their supporters left the Japan Innovation Party.[2] It bears the same Japanese name as the Osaka Restoration Association, which was also formed by Hashimoto, but is differentiated by writing "Osaka" in hiragana (おおさか) rather than in kanji (大阪).[1] References[edit] External links[edit] Initiatives from Osaka (Japanese)

Asahi exit poll: 49% support constitutional amendment:The Asahi Shimbun. Forty-nine percent of voters in the July 10 Upper House election said the Constitution should be amended, according to an Asahi Shimbun exit poll. The survey also showed that 44 percent were opposed to constitutional amendment, a goal of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. However, the poll found that revising the Constitution was not the central issue for voters when deciding which party to support in the Upper House election. It showed that 70 percent of voters in favor of constitutional amendment said they cast their ballots for the four pro-revision parties--Abe’s Liberal Democratic Party, junior coalition partner, Komeito, Initiatives from Osaka and the Party for Japanese Kokoro--in the proportional representation portion.

However, 40 percent of those who said they oppose revision also voted for the four parties. Ruling bloc retains majority in Japan's Upper House election. The Liberal Democratic Party-led ruling coalition scored a sweeping victory in the Upper House election Sunday that gave the Diet’s pro-revision forces the two-thirds majority needed to initiate Japan’s first constitutional referendum, final results showed Monday morning. Four parties in favor of constitutional revision, including the LDP-Komeito ruling bloc, won a combined 76 seats, adding to the current 88 held by pro-amendment forces in the uncontested half of the 242-seat Upper House.

Sunday’s election will increase the grand total of pro-revision forces in the Upper House to a supermajority of 164, a critical benchmark that will bring Prime Minister Shinzo Abe a huge step forward toward his longtime goal of amending the Constitution. Kyodo News reported that, in response to Sunday’s poll results, Abe is planning a full-fledged reshuffle of his Cabinet as early as August.

“We couldn’t appeal to enough voters,” Okada said. Okada rules out quitting DP helm over election drubbing; JCP says alliance just the first step. Katsuya Okada, president of the Democratic Party, said he will not resign immediately over the party’s disappointing showing in the Upper House election and failure to prevent forces in favor of constitutional reform from securing a two-thirds majority.

The party appears to have derived some benefit from its unprecedented electoral alliance with the Japanese Communist Party and two other opposition parties that coordinated the fielding of candidates in single-seat districts, with Okada saying late Sunday he hopes to carry over such cooperation to the next general election. The Democratic Party suffered a decline from the 60 seats it held in the 242-member chamber prior to the election, while the JCP ended with three more seats at 14.

“I’m disappointed that we couldn’t block (the pro-revision forces),” Okada said, admitting that his party’s ability to deliver its message to voters was “weak.” Upper House election exit poll highlights divide over constitutional revision. A Jiji exit poll has highlighted a divide over changing the nation’s pacifist Constitution, with 36.0 percent of voters who cast their ballots in Sunday’s Upper House election saying they opposed revision and 29.6 percent voicing support.

More than one-third of voters — 34.4 percent — also said they remain unsure on the issue. Parties in favor of constitutional amendments, including Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party and its coalition ally, Komeito, secured a two-thirds supermajority in the Diet’s upper chamber. A long-cherished policy goal of Abe, any changes would need to be supported by at least two-thirds of lawmakers in both chambers of the Diet.
