The Komeito party and the opposition camp have expressed doubt about whether the bill would do enough to enhance the transparency of political funds, and it is uncertain whether the bill will clear the House of Councillors, in which the LDP does not hold a majority.

Hashing out a bill that appears to address the LDP tax evasion and slushfunds while allowing ample loopholes, difficulty of enforcement and letting the LDP corruption carry on uninterrupted is a difficult legislative task.

The LDP has their work cut out for them!

Own rule, own monitoring and own enforcement. It's self regulated isn't it.
