A vote for Taro Yamamoto is a vote for much better Tokyo
On July 5th, the Tokyo gubernatorial election will take place, and many candidates such as Kenji Utsunomiya launched their election campaigns.
In this election, I will definitely vote for Taro Yamamoto, the leader of Reiwa Shinsengumi (a political party in Japan). He is a man who stands up for Japan’s working class families and has a very good and feasible plan to make Japan’s economy thrive.
Since the coronavirus outbreak and its pandemic, the world economy has been sliding into a great depression because economic activities have been severely restricted worldwide. Japan is no exception — the Japanese government indirectly ordered restaurants, bars, sports gyms, & many others to suspend their economic activities after the half-lock down was imposed (and as of June 23th the half lock down was ended.) The Japanese government implemented the policy without compensation, just asking Japanese people to stay home.
Consequently, many companies such as restaurants, taxi companies, hotels, and apparel companies were forced to go out of business, and accordingly their employees lost their jobs. Those workers who still work are now threatened with termination if they decline lower salaries offered by their employers.
Taro Yamamoto, who planned to run for an MP (and ultimately Japan’s Prime Minister), decided to run for Tokyo governor 2020 because, he says, he should immediately help those citizens & vulnerable people who were & would be hit by the coronavirus & the great depression. If he is elected Tokyo governor, he can do much more to support Tokyo citizens than the current Japanese government. He has pointed out that Shinzo Abe’s government has done nothing (except for giving 2 face masks & 100K-yen handouts) to help Japan’s ordinary people. He says that, if he is elected Tokyo governor, he will issue Tokyo local government bonds (total 15 trillion yen) to:
- pay out ¥100,000 per person for supporting all people living in Tokyo
- pay 1 million yen per company to support Tokyo-based small businesses
- pay hazard pay (24,000 yen per person & per day) to essential workers
- increase (by 3,000) the number of Tokyo’s public sector jobs to hire jobless workers
- make university tuition fees zero for one year
He adds that if he is elected governor, he will team other leaders of the local governments up, and then as a team he call for the Japanese government to declare the coronavirus pandemic a natural disaster to make it easier for those who were affected to receive financial assistance from the authorities.
Among the gubernatorial candidates, Taro Yamamoto is the best in terms of how to keep the economy afloat and save Tokyo and ultimately Japan.
