77th LDP Party Conference

January 23, 2010 12:00 AM

The 77th LDP Party Conference at the Akasaka Prince Hotel. The LDP Party Conference has been just a ceremonial one for many years. Party members come and join the Conference, but just as attendees. The Party needs to make the Conference a platform for the policy debate. Party members should have a say in LDP policy. The new Party Creed was adopted at the Conference, but the Creed itself was revealed at the Conference and was not for debate among the Party members. LDP needs to define itself and needs to be more inclusive.
