TOKYO – Shiori Yamao, a member of the Japanese House of Representatives for the opposition Democratic Party for the People, announced on June 17 that she would not retain her seat in the next general election expected this fall.
“I have something that I want to start over from a position other than a legislator. Therefore, I would like to mark this current term as the conclusion of my chapter as legislator, ”Yamao wrote in a social media post.
“What is most urgently needed in Nagatacho (Japan’s political center in Tokyo) is a change of players. In order to systematize the (political) metabolism, we also have to hold preliminary runs for office holders and set terms of office for the legislature. I believe that and have made suggestions in various situations, but it looks like it will be some time before they will be realized.
“So I’m taking the initiative and finishing this chapter after serving three ten-year terms,” wrote the prosecutor who became lawmaker. “Coming from another area and then going to another; I hope such a path becomes the norm in building a career. “
