On March 16, Komeito Chief Representative Natsuo Yamaguchi attended and spoke at a pep rally for Shigeki Sato, a Komeito member in the House of Representatives, held in Osaka.

Regarding the Finance Ministry’s tampering of documents related to sale of state land to school operator Moritomo Gakuen, Yamaguchi said that he felt disappointed and “anger” for the transgression. “We have been discussing this issue without the [tampering] fact being disclosed” for the past three months, he added, and reiterated his belief in the need to “rebuild the system of national administration.”
