On May 15, Komeito held its National Conference of Prefectural Representatives in Tokyo, which Chief Representative Natsuo Yamaguchi attended. In his speech, Yamaguchi reported that as a result of the local government elections held last month, Komeito emerged as the political party with the largest caucus of women legislators in Japan. It was also second in terms of new lawmakers elected into office, ensuring the party’s continued transition to a younger generation of members. He added that Komeito, as a partner in Japan’s ruling coalition government, would continue to serve as a driver of reform to enhance the quality of life of citizens.
