Japan security bills passed by special commission

Tokyo, July 15 (IANS) A series of security-related bills proposed by Japan’s ruling bloc were passed by a special commission of the Japanese parliament’s lower house on Wednesday, paving the way for a vote for the bills at the full chamber later.

Opposition lawmakers in the panel held banners reading “No allow to Abe’s politics” and tried to disrupt the passage of the bills, which are considered widely as unconstitutional, Xinhua reported.

The ruling camp, which groups Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s Liberal Democratic Party and the Komeito Party, will vote on the bills in the all-powerful lower house on Thursday.

Recent polls by Japanese media showed that the majority of the Japanese population is against the security legislation and many Japanese constitutional experts view the bills as unconstitutional.

The bills, if enacted, will allow the Japanese Self-Defence Forces to engage in armed conflicts overseas and help defend others even if Japan is not attacked.
