Koike's Party of Hope Relying on DP Funds for Election

(Jiji Press)

Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike's fledgling national political party has co-opted candidates for the upcoming general election from the Democratic Party and, along with them, taken in government subsidies paid to the splintering DP.
The flows of public funds to the Party of Hope have come under criticism from officials of the ruling bloc led by the Liberal Democratic Party, who called for the subsidies to be returned to government coffers.
The DP, the largest opposition party before the House of Representatives was dissolved in late September for an election this month, has distributed 20 million yen each to members who were lawmakers in the Lower House until the dissolution to help their candidacies in the election on the DP ticket.
The party has also doled out 15 million yen each to other former Lower House lawmakers and first-timers it planned to field in the election.
For the endorsement fund allotments, the DP used some of its internal reserves totaling nearly 15 billion yen, consisting mainly of government subsidies.
