Party debate

Party debateWhat is (Toshutoron)?Political party OfParty leaderDiscuss with each other.ParliamentWhen it is carried out as a public system inelectionIn the periodMass mediaIt may be done through.

Regarding the party leader debate held in the Japanese Diet,Budget CommitteeTV / radio broadcast and online distribution will be performed in the same way as[1].

Diet of Japan

Japan Of国会Then, as a general rule, once a week during the opening of the meeting,National Basic Policy CommitteeAs a joint examination committee ofprime minister(Ruling partyParty leader)OppositionDiscussions will be held by the leaders of each party.Coalition governmentIn, the ruling party leaders other than the prime minister are not supposed to participate.Unlike budget deliberation, the prime minister is also allowed to ask the opposition leader the opposite question, and the opposition party is not only required to criticize the administration, but is required to present alternatives.

Ichiro OzawaIs said to be the creator of OzawaLDP secretary generalSince the times, he has been positively trying to set up a party leader debate in the Diet.British ParliamentInQuestion timeAs a model,1999 Stipulated that a National Basic Policy Committee should be established in JulyParliamentary deliberation activation lawWas established, the same yearMay 11At the 146th Diet sessionLDP OfPrime MinisterKeizo ObuchiAnd the leader of the opposition (Democratic Party RepresentativeYukio Hatoyama,Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Central Committee of the Japanese Communist PartyTetsuzo Fuwa,Social DemocratsParty leaderTakako Doi) Participated in the party leader debate.[2]at firstDainiin ClubThe criteria for the opposition parties to participate in the party leader debate were unclear, such as being unable to participate even though they had offered to participate.

By the way, the first question in the party leader debate was the representative of the Democratic Party.Yukio Hatoyama"What did the Prime Minister eat in the morning?pizzaI have eaten.In particular, we have enjoyed the warm and very hot pizza.First of all, this is the Prime MinisterOfficialsI don't need any help from all of you, so I would like to ask you what you ate. "Prime MinisterKeizo Obuchi"As usual日本 食 OfMealI have beenI heard that you could eat hot pizza,America OfOrbrightSecretary of StateI've been told that cold pizza is also delicious before. "[3]..This is for ObuchiNew York TimesDescribed as a "chilled pizza",United KingdomQuestion time starts by asking the Prime Minister's schedule[4].

Since then, the party leader debate has continued to this day.Initially, both houses of the DietBudget CommitteeIt is held as a joint examination committee ofNational Basic Policy CommitteeThe first party leader debate in2000 May 2Was done in.At that timeMay 2At the request of the joint secretary meeting of both houses of the Dietprime ministerAnd more than 10 people in the lower house or upper houseMemberConsists ofIn-hospital negotiation groupQualifiedOpposition(Parliamentary groupWe will hold face-to-face discussions with the party leader. ”The above-mentioned Dainiin Club has set a clear standard that it cannot participate in the party leader debate.

However, in addition to the criticism that the time for the party leader debate is short (45 minutes in total) and the qualification of the opposition party who can speak as mentioned above, it is an in-hospital negotiation group, and the party leader belongs to the National Basic Policy Committee as a member of the Diet Only if you havePolitical party・ There are also voices that the system may not be fully utilized, such as the fact that the parliamentary group is not allowed to participate and that the difference from the budget deliberation is unclear because there are not many reverse questions from the prime minister.Also,Main ConventionThe ruling and opposition parties have agreed not to hold a party leader debate during the week when the prime minister attends the budget committee, and the party leader debate is often not held.

In some cases, the party leaders who used to have discussions with the party leaders were unable to participate because they could not meet the requirements of the above-mentioned in-hospital negotiation group and the requirements of the party leader belonging to the National Basic Policy Committee due to the results of elections.[5].

When the Democratic Party was an opposition party, there was a movement to allocate its own time to other parties,KomeitoIt didn't happen due to strong opposition.The Komeito was the ruling party that had not issued a prime minister from the beginning until September 2009, so it joined for the first time in February 9.Everyone's partyWas qualified as an in-hospital negotiating organization in the House of Councilors after July 2010, but was unable to participate because the party leader did not belong to the National Basic Policy Committee as a member of the Diet at first, but in the party leader debate in April 7. By accommodating the Liberal Democratic Party and the committee to which it belongs, the leader of the party agreed to belong to the National Basic Policy Committee as a member of the Diet, and participated.Japan Communist PartyRegained the qualifications of an in-hospital negotiating organization that had been lost since 2003, but since the party leader did not belong to the National Basic Policy Committee as a member of the Diet, he became the leader of the National Basic Policy Committee again. I couldn't participate until I rejoined.The Japanese Communist Party has returned to the party leader debate for the first time in 2013 years after the party leader debate in May 7, which was held for the first time since the party leader rejoined the National Basic Policy Committee.

However, the question time in the British Parliament is, as the name implies, "question time", which is nothing more than a question to the prime minister and the prime minister to answer.Since the opposition leader has the right to ask questions with priority, the prime minister cannot ask the opposite question, the opposition leader is not obliged to show an alternative, and members other than the leader can ask questions. ..In these respects, the debate over the leaders of the Japanese Diet was with the United Kingdom.CommonwealthIt is very different from that of other countries such as countries.

NHK and core broadcasters must broadcast their political views as they are (the latter part of Article 150, Paragraph 1 and the latter part of Paragraph 3 of the Act).

In addition, the use of broadcasting equipment for election campaigns is limited to cases permitted by law, such as political broadcasting and career broadcasting (Article 151, Paragraph 5 of the Law).

Incidentally,WalkoverIf no vote is taken next to the party, the political broadcast will not be carried out (Article 151-2, Paragraphs 1 and 2 of the Act).

Background of the start

In April 1946 (Showa 21), which was the first general election after the war.22th House of Representatives general electionOn the occasion,Japan Broadcasting Corporation(NHK)Radio first broadcastWas carried out for the first time in[1].

at that timeMinistry of CommunicationsUnder the concept of Yoshio Miyamoto, who was the director of the radio wave stationAllied Supreme Commander General Command(Ghq) Staff DepartmentPrivate Information Education BureauThrough negotiations with (CIE), two types of broadcasting have been decided: "party broadcasting" by national broadcasting and "candidate political viewing broadcasting" by local broadcasting.[2].. Of these, the "Candidate Political Broadcast" was held from March 3 to April 14 of the same year, and broadcasted the political views of three or more candidates each time for 4 minutes in the evening.[2].. "Political party broadcasting" was approved only for political parties that had candidates in more than 12 prefectures, and in addition to the five major political parties at that time, three of the various parties participated.[1].. Back thenRecordingThe technology is underdeveloped and all of these broadcastsLive broadcastwas[1].. Also, the speech manuscriptCCDHas been rigorously censored. It is said that some candidates abandoned broadcasting because the manuscript was disapproved by censorship.[1].

In 1947 (Showa 22), the new constitution (The Constitution of Japan) Before enforcement1th Unified Local Election(February 4th),1rd House of Councilors ordinary election(February 4th),23th House of Representatives general election(April 4th) was carried out. At this time, political broadcasts were broadcast in the elections of both Houses of Representatives and the Unified Local Elections in the elections of the governors of 25 prefectures and the mayors of 46 cities with a population of 10 or more. In addition, the prefectural assembly election and the city assembly election with a population of 42 or more were also held in some areas at stations that can broadcast due to the relationship between the number of candidates and the broadcasting time. As a result, the political broadcast was broadcast for a long period from March 10st to April 3th of the same year, with peak hours of 21 hours a day.[2].

There was no legal support up to the above, but in July 1948 (Showa 23), broadcasting based on was obligatory for NHK Radio.[3]The following year, January 1949 (Showa 24)24th House of Representatives general electionApplied from. At this time, in addition to the political broadcast, a candidate introduction broadcast (later a career broadcast) was also started. In 1950 (Showa 25), the new integrated law on public office elections, the "Public Offices Election Law," was enacted and enforced, and the provisions of political broadcasting were included in the law following the conventional laws and regulations.

Even after the main broadcast of television began in 1953 (Showa 28), political broadcasts were long limited to radio only. In the early days of television broadcasting, technical problems related to program organization and issues related to program organization were issues to ensure the fairness of election broadcasting.Broadcast areaAnd there was a problem of difference in the constituency area[4].. In 1968 (Showa 43), when television was beginning to spread nationwide, discussions became active in the Diet.[5][Note 1]The following year, in September 1969 (Showa 44), the revised Public Offices Election Act came into effect, and the ban on political broadcasting on television was lifted.[3][Note 2].. The first TV political broadcast after the revisionTokushima prefectural governor election in September of the same yearMet[3][5].. The initial rules were that each candidate had a career of 1 seconds and a political view of 30 minutes and 4 seconds, only once for wide-area broadcasting, and twice per channel for prefectural broadcasting.[3].

In Okinawa, which was under the administration of the US military, prior to the mainland,Ryukyu BroadcastingOn September 1960, 10,5th Legislative Assembly General ElectionAt that time, the political broadcasts of the four leaders (free democracy, social masses, people, and society) were broadcast simultaneously on radio and television.[6].

It is not well known to general voters that there are no candidates for political groups or no affiliation in the political broadcasting of the lower house election district, and there is a concern that they may be seen as neglecting the political broadcasting. There is an extremely large gap with the political party candidates who have been recognized. In addition, on November 1999, 11 (Heisei 11),Supreme CourtThe en banc ruling said, "The provision that allows political party broadcasting only to candidates for political party notification isEquality under the lawContrary toThe Constitution of JapanIt's not a violation. "

On the other hand, in the constituency elections for the Upper House election and the prefectural governor elections, all candidates can broadcast political views.

In the case of the House of Representatives constituencies, the careers of all candidates will be announced in order for each constituency.

NowadaysTerrestrial waveThe current situation is that commercial TV stations, especially wide-area stations in the Kanto and Kansai regions, can only broadcast early in the morning or late at night due to organizational reasons.For commercial broadcasters, the production cost and sponsorship fee (publicized price) are paid from public expenses (national and governor elections are prefectural), but the publicly announced sponsorship fee and the actual fee are the farthest apart in the early morning. There are many late-night broadcasts.Prefectural stations (affiliated stations) often broadcast during the day on weekdays.On the other hand, at independent stations (television), the published fee and the actual fee are always different, so it is broadcast at the highest prime time (except for some). In the case of NHK, it was previously held in the golden time of 19:20 to 21:22 and the latter half of XNUMX:XNUMX to XNUMX:XNUMX, but from the viewpoint of securing viewers for regular broadcasts, political broadcasts are now being broadcast in the golden frame.

Regional exceptions at NHK

NHK and commercial broadcasters have their own broadcasting stationsBroadcast target areaAlthough it is supposed to broadcast the political broadcast of, some NHK may broadcast the political broadcast outside the region (In / out relayと 呼 ば れ る[15]). This is a measure taken because of the remnants of the era when wide-area broadcasting was performed across multiple prefectures in the past, and because broadcasting stations that are not originally under the jurisdiction are received on a daily basis due to geographical circumstances.

Although this special case has been gradually resolved due to changes in the radio wave environment such as the development of radio relay stations and the digitization of television broadcasting, some of the special cases are still being taken over.

Regional exceptions as of 2017 (Heisei 29)

Regarding this matterYamaguchi stationWas calling attention on a special site for a limited time when digitizing Shimonoseki City.

In order to eliminate these special cases, it is technically possible to strictly protect the broadcasting target area, but in many areas, the habit of receiving broadcasting stations outside the jurisdiction is deeply rooted, and all It is unclear whether the special case will be resolved like the Kitakyushu station mentioned above.

We suspect that the cause was a device problem, so we broadcast it again at the same time on the 3th.[26].

Content and trends

In principle, the content recorded / recorded by the candidate must not be edited at all and must be broadcast as it is, and the candidate's remarks and other broadcast content (dressing strangely or defaming others). Broadcasters are not liable for (including slander). In addition, even if the broadcasting station in charge of producing and broadcasting the political broadcast has unfavorable remarks or actions, it will be broadcast as it is because the broadcasting station cannot intervene in editing for the same reason (in principle).Mini party-Foam candidateNot onlyFreedom of speechIt can be said that it is a natural consequence from the fact that[27][28][Note 14].

Therefore, there is an advantage that you can appeal yourself through broadcasting, so you will be rejected andDeposit moneyIt also contributes to the large number of foam candidates running for elections, prepared to be confiscated.[28][30].

However, the law states that "maintaining dignity in political broadcasting" means "candidates for public office and notification of candidates".Political party,House of RepresentativesPolitical parties notifying the list andHouse of CouncilorsPolitical parties notifying the list are aware of their responsibilities, and when broadcasting (political broadcasting) prescribed in paragraph 1 or 3 of the preceding article, they damage the honor of others or other political parties or other political organizations or have good manners and customs. To hurt or advertise a specific product or other business (Broadcasting law(Acts prohibited by Article 83), etc.) must not be said or acted to impair the dignity of the political broadcast (Article 150-2 of the Act). If there is a statement that conflicts with this, immediately before the relevant political broadcast,"Part of the audio has been deleted based on the provisions of Article 150-2 of the Public Offices Election Act."And the deleted part is silent only for the voice. In addition, the number of persons who have made public false matters regarding candidates for public office, etc. for the purpose of not winning the election in the political broadcast is 5 years or less.ImprisonmentPenalty orimprisonmentPenalty or less than 100 million yenfineA fine of up to 100 million yen and a criminal penalty are stipulated for those who advertise a specific product or other business in the sentence or political broadcast (Article 235-3 of the Act).

At that time, the party's political broadcast broadcast that party executives read out the names of proportional candidates and introduced them, and the name of Ashikaga was also introduced. Since the political broadcast was recorded only once and the content could not be modified by the broadcasting station, it continued to be introduced as a candidate for the party even after the name of Ashikaga was deleted.

Correspondence on the Internet

Self-regulation in simulcast service

The provisions of Article 150 of the Public Offices Election Act are based on the premise of broadcasting on radio and television, and do not assume simultaneous distribution on the Internet. Considering Article 150 "for the public interest" as it is, as long as it is a paid and free-competitive infrastructure, the provision of political broadcasting on the Internet, where each household or individual may or may not enjoy the service, is a candidate. It will be interpreted as disturbing the fairness of the opportunity to know information. (However, with the official websites of political parties, political groups, and candidatesYouTubeIt may be uploaded on the channel. For this reason, each broadcaster's simulcast service has various responses as follows.

NHK stipulates that political broadcasts cannot be distributed on the Internet at the same time.[36]..Therefore, during the political broadcast time, the simultaneous TV distribution service "NHK PlusIn ""Futakabuse videoIs delivered.Simultaneous radio distribution service "NHK Net Radio Rajiru Rajiru"and"radikoNHK channels[Note 15]Then, in the case of broadcasting only in some areas (prefectural FM broadcasting, etc.), the channel will be replaced with another program centering on music programs (normal programs will be distributed as backtracking at each station other than the area), and the distribution station. In the case of broadcasting in the entire area, it will be replaced with its own filler music and an announcement that refuses to interrupt the distribution.

In the live distribution of each channel of "radiko" of each commercial radio station, the correspondence of each station is different (there are two types, one is the station that distributes live as it is and the other is the station that sends the filler).The paid services "Area-free listening" service and "Time-free listening" service will not be distributed, and the frame will be replaced with "Distribution suspension filler" common to radiko and fillers unique to the station.Especially in the latter case, it leads to disturbing the predetermined broadcasting order and number of times, which violates the Public Offices Election Act.

By all means sharing broadcast materials

The political broadcastCopyright lawIn the "publicly made political speech or statement" stipulated in Article 40, it is understood that "it can be used regardless of which method is used."[37].. The political broadcast during the electionYouTubeEtc.Video sharing siteUploading to is sometimes a problem, but this is not under copyright lawPublic office election lawThe above problem. For example, fairness cannot be guaranteed by uploading only the political broadcasts of a specific candidate.16th Unified Local ElectionDuring the voting periodAmebaVisionWas uploaded to YouTubeTokyo Governor ElectionThere was a request from both video sharing sites to delete the political broadcast, but this is also because the fairness is lost because only the videos of specific candidates are uploaded.[38][39].. The fact that the requester for deletion is not the broadcasting station that broadcast the political broadcast but the Tokyo Metropolitan Election Commission also shows that it is not a copyright law reason but a deletion request under the Public Offices Election Law. ..

Broadcast for public relations of constitutional amendment

Constitutional Amendment Procedure LawBased on Article 106, at the time of the referendum for constitutional amendment, the referendum public relations council and the political parties that support or disagree (one or more members of the House of Representatives or the party or other political organization to which the members of the House of Councilors belong and the chairman of both houses The referendum and public relations council have been notified as determined by the discussions), but the broadcast for publicity of the constitutional amendment is to be broadcast on NHK or private broadcasting by TV and radio.

Broadcasts conducted by the referendum public relations council are supposed to objectively and neutrally publicize the constitutional amendment bill and its summary and other matters that should be referred to, and political parties, etc. give opinions in favor of or against the constitutional amendment bill. It can be broadcast for free. At that time, it is necessary to provide the same number of hours and the same time zone to both the political parties that agree with the constitutional amendment and the parties that oppose it, and the political parties, etc. must provide the same convenience. Part of this can be done by the designated organization.
