The Democratic Party of Japan is considering extending the term of its party leader to three years rather than the current two, DPJ sources said.

The change presented by a DPJ committee would apply to the winner of the party’s presidential election scheduled for next September. The matter will be decided at the DPJ’s convention in January, the sources said Tuesday.
