Former Environment Minister Goshi Hosono on Thursday said he’d like to launch a new party with Tokyo Gov. Yuriko Koike’s ally Masaru Wakasa by year-end.

Hosono, who left the main opposition Democratic Party earlier this month, also said he aims to reach an agreement on key policy issues with Wakasa, an independent in the House of Representatives, before the expected extraordinary Diet session convenes in autumn.
