According to reports, at the discussion meeting, many opposition party leaders will have a one-on-one debate with Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga. The opposition party is expected to focus on the issue of whether to host the Tokyo Olympics. Yoshihide Suga is in trouble. A Cadet Party official said, “(between) the ruling party that insists on hosting the Olympics, and the opposition party (between) that supports the termination or postponement of the Olympics, I hope the nationals will make a judgment.”
The report pointed out that the last party head seminar was held in June 2019. If this time can be held smoothly, it will be the first party leader discussion meeting after Suga Yoshihide took office.
Affected by the new crown epidemic, the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games, originally scheduled to be held in 2020, have been postponed to July 23 and August 24, 2021, respectively.
