Katsuya Okada of DPJ – “Dissolution in June-July”

Katsuya Okada of Democratic Party of Japan believes that there is a high probability that the Lower House of parliament will be dissolved after the end of the regular session around June-July next year. As for the reason he stated that should the consumption tax be raised up to 10% as it was planned “there would be no telling how the economic situation would progress for about a half of a year. In such dangerous situation it is impossible (to hold the elections)”.
Okada believes that PM Abe would dissolve the Lower House before the tax raise.
