|Title||Politician\\\\\\\'s Convincing Capability and People\\\\\\\'s Understanding Capability|
|Abstract||Japan is facing many big problems: a super-aging society, pension issues, unstable employment conditions and low wages among young people, widening gaps in society, food safety, and so on. However, the Diet is deadlocked and can not go anywhere. Every time an election is held, we, politicians, must conclude a new contract with the people - a contract made by our political ideas and policies beyond the framework of parties or factions. Politicians need to have the fortitude not to break the contract. Meanwhile, people need to have the fortitude to understand and cooperate on the policies proposed by the politicians they elected.
This event has concluded.
