The Liberal Democratic Party has resumed discussions on revising the Constitution after its big win in last month's election, when it pledged to pursue the first-ever amendment.

With Prime Minister Shinzo Abe eager to revise the Constitution, particularly the war-renouncing Article 9, the LDP is expected to craft its amendment proposals and present them during the ordinary Diet session that starts in January.

Hiroyuki Hosoda, a veteran LDP lawmaker who recently became head of the LDP panel promoting constitutional reform, called on party members at the outset of the panel's gathering Thursday to continue to cooperate in the discussions.
