Kokumin Domei


The Kokumin Domei (国民同盟, Kokumin Dōmei) or National Citizens' Alliance is a right-wing fascist-populist party created in 1959 by Shin Kanemaru and four Constitutional-Democratic lawmakers who defected from their group in the House of Representatives. While Shin Kanemaru is the founder and current leader of the party, it has received backing and aid from Masanobu Tsuji, the Deputy director of the State Security Agency's Foreign Defense Office. Businessman Ryoichi Sasakawa, who also supports the World Anti-Communist League has actively backed the party at its inception.

The party advocates a complete restoration of the Emperor's powers, including claims to divinity through his ancient lineage, as well as complete revision of the Constitution. These positions are similar, albeit more extreme, to the ones held by the mainstream Constitutional-Democratic Party, whose aims also include constitutional revision. In international politics, the Kokumin Domei advocates for pan-Asian unity against Communism, and backs the US-Japan alliance. The party denounces the inability of the current cabinet to achieve its goals, and has called for new elections.

While it bears many similarities to the 1930s party Linkof the same name, it is not related to it.
