Just giving Kishida the reason he needs to call an election and further strengthen the LDP once again.

I'm not ready for another inane, shrieking election campaign making a mockery of democracy. I don't suppose the opposition is ready for an election either. What's the point?

The pantomime that is Japanese politics continues….

That's the problem with democracy, very often the most incompetent people get to be the leaders. We have a clear example of the US having a senile old fool with tainted morals and low IQ becoming the president.

I agree! It’s an absolute pantomime.

Why have multiple parties when the same one almost always wins, just have one major mixed ruling party and save the tax payers $$ and the headaches.

Civil service provides continuity

After decades of stagnation a country does not need "continuity." It needs elected legislators who can see its problems, formulate solutions and get the civil servants to implement them.

Civil service provides continuity

In its self-serving and endlessly expanding manner. It, along with LDP, is part of the problem.

3, 2, 1 ... the Council for the Protection of the Bureaucracy, LDP and Japan will be mobilising the downvotes.

I agree the politics need to change. But civil service are not politics. They provide continuity of govt so the country doesn't grind to a standstill while new political hacks are appointed to chief scientist and vehicle licensing branches. That's how it used to be done in many countries.
