[EN] JA 18 – Reinforcing Political Leadership – March 2010


The Hatoyama government is undertaking major institutional reforms in order to increase the influence of politicians in the decision- making process. Among the commitments set out in its manifesto, the Democratic Party Japan (Minshutô) has expressed its aim of bringing about a political structure in which “politicians will shoulder their responsibilities instead of delegating them to the civil service” and “the national interest will be safeguarded by the executive, rather than ministers’ interests being defended by their respective branches of the civil service”. The government has begun to implement this programme; bills have been drafted and should be put to the vote before the end of the parliamentary session.
