Japan’s opposition parties against collective self-defense


08-16-2014 20:30 BJT

An alliance of Japan’s opposition parties has proposed a draft law that would prohibit exercising collective self-defense. 

The draft of Peaceful Establishment of Basic Law was proposed on Friday by the partisan Alliance, "Constitution Platform", which includes the opposition Democratic Party of Japan and the Social Democratic Party. It put forward basic ideas on security policies, such as safeguarding the right to peaceful existence and to establish exclusive defense. 

The Alliance says the ideas are based on pacifism and international cooperation in Japan’s Constitution. The draft is set to be submitted to parliament this fall.
