The Democratic Party of Japan, assuming it wins the Aug. 30 election, wants to establish a new policymaking bureau at its first Cabinet meeting, possibly in mid-September, to let a DPJ-led government swiftly begin translating its campaign pledges into action, party sources said Wednesday.

Via the bureau, the DPJ-led government would immediately revise the supplementary budget for the current fiscal year and compile a new budget for the next fiscal year to put into action policies proposed in the party’s campaign platform, the sources said.
