Jisedai no To, or the “Party For New Generations” established by conservative lawmakers including former Tokyo Gov. Shintaro Ishihara, unveiled its basic policies Thursday, including drafting a new Constitution and denying non-Japanese residents the right to vote in any election, national or local.

The policies were drafted along “neoconservatism” lines — what the party described as a mix of conservative security policies, stricter immigration laws and advocacy of traditional values on the one hand, and “liberalism” in economic areas on the other, such as pursuing regulatory reform.
