Speaker of parliament

The chairpersons of both chambers are officers under the Diet Act (Article 16 (1) of the Diet Act).


Each house has its own chairMemberFrom among these, a single-entry bearer vote is selected by mutual election, and the person with the most votes is the chairman (Article 23 of the Diet Law, Article 3 of the House of Representatives Rule, Article 4 of the House of Councilors Rule).Prime Minister Nomination ElectionIs a secret ballot, while the chairman's election is a secret ballot.[1].

In general, there are many cases in which an elder politician of the first parliamentary group is elected, and it is regarded as an "Agari Post".1973Since the chairpersons of both chambers belong to each other for the sake of fairness.Parliamentary groupWithdraw fromNon-inscritious activityIs customary.PreviouslyYuzo ShigemuneIn some cases, he exerted influence on the personnel affairs of his political party, but there was also a time when the House of Representatives had previously agreed to leave the party of the Vice-Chairman.[2][3]..There are mixed cases of maintaining party membership and leaving the party.When running for elections shortly after the expiration of the term, the House of Representatives usually runs for the official approval of the political party to which it belongs.[4]Therefore, when the House of Councilors runs for election in an electoral district (former local district), it is customary to run for non-official.British House of RepresentativesElections that leave the party completely, such as the chairman, are not completely neutral, as major political parties do not offer counter-candidates.

Under the Constitution of Japan, there are many cases of unanimous election in the chairperson election, but in the House of Representatives chairperson election in March 1955.Shuji Masutani Takekichi MikiIn the July 1971 House of Councilors electionKenzo Kono Shiro KiuchiIn the election of the Speaker of the House of Representatives in August 1993Takako Doi Seisuke OkunoThere was also an example of fighting.In both cases, the former was elected.

Experienced as chairman of the House of Representatives in 1948, shortly after the warTakeshi YamazakiIs a candidate for the prime ministerYamazaki head group conceptThere is[5]During the transitional period of postwar Japanese politics, it was not uncommon for an experienced chairman of the House of Representatives to assume a key position in the administration with the aim of further motivation for power.[6]..After the transitional period of postwar Japanese politics, the chairman's post is considered to be the last post to be appointed by an elder politician.Shigezaburo Maeo,Michita SakataHe declined when he was called to take office as prime minister after he retired, saying, "It is not good for an experienced chairman to become prime minister because of the authority of the Diet." Since the 1970s, the experienced chairman has more power. The tendency to refrain from aiming for greed has permeated.Candidate for chairNikaido Susumu,Keizo ObuchiRespects the above-mentioned trend and shows motivation to the prime minister and refuses to take office as chairman. An example of an experienced chairman appointed to an administrative position after December 1978 isYoshihiko Tsuchiya(Retired as chairman on October 1991, 10, July 4, 1992SaitamaGovernor)Eda May(Retired as chairman on October 2010, 7, July 25, 2011Minister of JusticeHowever, there are criticisms that the appointment of an experienced chairman to an administrative position undermines the authority of the chairman.Takako DoiとMinsuke WatanukiAfter the experience of chairing the House of RepresentativesParty leaderWas appointed toHead nominationThere is an example of getting a vote in.

To dismiss an officer appointed by CongressDiet lawIt cannot be achieved unless there is a special provision in the Parliamentary Law.[7]..Currently, the Diet Law stipulates dismissal rules for the standing chairperson, and the plenary sessionDismissal resolutionCan be passed and dismissed (Article 30-2 of the Diet Act).Chair at the plenary sessionNo confidence resolutionIt is said that it is not legally binding even if it is passed.To force a dismissal if a vote of no confidence refuses to resign voluntarilyDisciplinary offenseAsExpulsionAnd disqualified as a member of the Diet[8]However, it is impossible for the chairman to disregard the convention and deliberate on the agenda for himself without letting the vice-chairman act for the management of the proceedings and ex officio deliberation and voting of disciplinary decisions.


The term of office of the chairman depends on the term of office as a member of the Diet (Article 18 of the Diet Act).It is customary for the House of Councilors to resign at the time of convening the Diet after the election and hold another election.

The chairman's right to organize proceedings is a very powerful political authority, but in realityParliamentary Steering CommitteeIt is considered to be a de facto honorary position in the political world because it is a post that has few opportunities to exercise authority by its own judgment because the practice of entrusting the decision on the arrangement of proceedings in the form of consultation has been established.If a situation different from the prior meeting of the ruling and opposition parties occurs during the plenary session, the directors of the House Steering Committee will gather to discuss and the chairman will proceed with the proceedings according to the conclusion.The phase in which the chairman exerts political influence is limited to mediation and mediation when the conflict between the ruling and opposition parties becomes stalemate.Against the background of the chairman's authority, he calls for mediation proposals and party leader talks, and both the ruling and opposition parties will lead to a settlement while maintaining the ment.However, if the mediation is unsuccessful, the authority of the chairman may be damaged and he may be forced to resign.
  • Legislative Chamber Administrative Supervision Right (Article 19 of the Diet Act)
  • Representative right of the House of Representatives (Article 19 of the Diet Law)
The chairman will perform, send, and accept on behalf of the House of Representatives.[11].
