    新会派

    Some of the opponents of Japan Post privatization are forming their own faction in the Diet, or at least proposing doing so:

    Legislators who were dropped by the LDP after voting against Japan Post privatization in the ordinary Diet session but managed to win reelection as unaffiliated candidates have begun working toward the formation of a new faction. Takeo Hiranuma stated to the press on 15 September, “If unaffiliated people of the same way of thinking get together, they can form a single new faction.” There are, however, those among the unaffiliated legislators who are making moves toward uniting forming a united faction with the People’s New Party, so responses may be divided.

    Hiranuma is a former Minister of Economy, Trade, and Industry, BTW. Not a man of mean power and influence.
