The Democratic Party of Japan has announced its manifesto for the Aug. 30 Lower House election. It has two pillars: scheduled measures to directly help households and steps to end bureaucracy-led politics.
To help households, the DPJ proposes a monthly allowance of ¥26,000 for a child up to the middle school age, zero tuition for a public high school student and a minimum ¥70,000 monthly pension; plus a lower tax for smaller corporations, income compensation for farmers, a ¥100,000 monthly allowance for a jobless person in job training, and making expressways toll free.
