Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga Disappears To Avoid Answering Question of Mizuho Fukushima (Social Democratic Party)
Suspected Violation of the Constitution
- He didn’t disappear but couldn’t appear. -
If my intuition is not wrong, I think Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga didn’t disappear but could not appear. Even if asked the reason, it is hardly possible that he will honestly answer it. If the reason is known to the public, an operation in progress behind the scenes is revealed. I cannot write about it in more detail. Please just imagine it. It appears that things are making progress at a much faster rate than I expect.

English translation of an excerpt from a Japanese article: “Seeking for Security, Safety and Confidene” – November 30, 2013 –
In a Diet session, there occurred an infringement of Diet member’s right to ask questions to the Cabinet!
<Ms. Mizuho Fukushima>
“It is really regrettable that the chief cabinet secretary is not present here although I as a questioner request him to answer my question.
I wanted him to formally answer his opinion on the Special State Secret Protection Bill. I think that absence (of him) is an infringement of rights to ask questions in the Diet.
It is stipulated in the Constitution that any Cabinet official should present himself to answer a question if requested by a Diet member.
It is stipulated in the Constitution.
Additionally, question time permitted to me is very important in the same way as to all Diet members.
Despite this, he won’t present himself or the ruling party has behaved in an autocratic manner. I do strongly protest against such an infringement of our rights.
(Infringement on people’s rights)
This is absolutely an infringement on people’s rights.
I want to tell the media and people that he should present himself from next time. Why won’t the chief cabinet secretary appear to answer a question over such an important bill, though I requested him to do so?
I want to say: “Chief Cabinet Secretary, do appear!”
I’ll take seriously the words of Mr. Nishida: “I understand,” who responded to my request for attendance of the chief cabinet secretary!
…. I’d like to ask a question.
