The motion was presented during the current session of the Diet (bicameral Parliament), as they consider the management of the official inadequate in the face of the rise in prices in the country.
“We cannot ignore the inactivity of the government on the economic front. Only the increase in defense spending stands out, but there are few concrete measures for education and child rearing,” said the leader of the party, Kenta Izumi, during a press conference prior to the meeting.
The head of the party criticized Kishida during the debate for focusing the supplementary budget for the fiscal year 2022 on the oil subsidy, which “will not protect people’s lives or revive the Japanese economy,” the Kyodo agency reported.
The CDP presented the motion independently, but requested the support of the rest of the opposition groups.
Izumi also proposed a similar measure against the president of the House of Representatives, Hiroyuki Hosoda, who faces accusations of sexual harassment.
For its part, the Liberal Democratic Party downplayed the initiative. Takeshi Takagi, a member of the leadership, assured that the ruling coalition, to which Komeito also belongs, will vote against both motions because “there is no clear reason for a lack of confidence.”
