Governor Kabashima

 Then it is the last announcement.

About stage of *々za (wakuwakuza) of Kumamoto-shi, castle Aya Land (josaien), we decided to extend appearance of KUMAMON.

As standing audience leaves stage of *々za where KUMAMON appeared on in this summer; became prosperous very much. Let alone the prefecture, we hear that we had outside the prefecture and foreign tourists satisfy very much, and I am pleased, too.

From Kumamoto-shi, there was request about extension of appearance of KUMAMON. Therefore we loaded support of damaged Kumamoto-jo Castle and visitors with thought that we wanted to convey feeling of thanks and provided mission by earthquake to follow KUMAMON, and to appear on stage of "*々za".

For five months from October to next February, we are going to appear from 13:00 of second Saturday and Sunday. In addition, in New Year holidays and spring vacation when tourists increases, we consider in direction increasing appearance days more.

Commencing with "KUMAMON birth festival planning in next March," we have KUMAMON carry out a full activity sequentially and want to have "hospitality" in the center city area of Kumamoto show power including castle Aya Land.

About KUMAMON relations, there is report one more. "Large KUMAMON exhibition" that we announced was held last month the other day at the Hankyu umeda head office of Osaka-shi.

Questions and answers
●About interchange with Indonesian badminton team
(secretary company)
 Thank you. At first it is several points or asks a question from secretary person.
 I ask about matter of the first point Indonesian badminton team.
 On the other day, German swimming race team thinks to have been decided to undergo prior camp in Kumamoto-shi in Kumamoto-shi, but please let know whether it is suggested anything that we want what kind of country, what kind of competition to lodge together in advance as well as this Indonesia at this time.
Governor Kabashima

Governor Kabashima

 Yes. In Kikuchi-shi, it is already that camp is opened about boat canoe competition of Norway, and, for glad news, even Kumamoto-shi is that camp was decided right in front of federation of German swimming the other day. We think that invitation in the prefecture is realized steadily in this sense. When badminton is exercising hard now (next time), too and wants to invite right or wrong camping about it using this opportunity though World Cup of rugby is held this time (we think). And we think women's handball championship to have possibilities to be very influential candidate. When we want to turn to next OLYMPIC of international athletic meet of 2019 by taking advantage of such a various opportunities (we think). We think that each may not affect organically.

 

Questions and answers

●About publication of earthquake disaster-related death

(secretary company)

 Though it is slightly different from today's announcement item, we hear when the middle count that gathered up so-called cause of death classification of associated death in the prefectural assembly public welfare Standing Committee of the other day was submitted. Elderly person occupies about 90% basically, and please let count result that one having past illnesses occupies about 90% know you receive in future this it was, but how you arrest reputation stopper of the count result count result, and what kind of measures you want to keep alive as experience in that.

 

Governor Kabashima

 Yes. The number of so-called lonely death that performed news release on September 29 is nine cases. So, according to the document, it is allied death of 189 people about allied death currently (the public welfare Standing Committee). Naturally as we cannot announce the name, we get information from the municipalities, and there is the main cause of death classification that we added up in the prefecture. Does everybody have it?

 

(secretary company)

 Though there is not at hand (the public welfare permanent post), is committee; (had document).

 

Governor Kabashima

 According to it, it is pulmonary disease, pneumonia or bronchitis that there is the most. It is 26 disease, this of cardiovascular systems such as heart failure or subarachnoid hemorrhage that is the second most. Is it 5%? The third comes to seem to say sudden death, endogenous sudden death and suicide. We think that it may not be interim report about-related death that we can analyze (we say) that we can classify that such a thing was caused by earthquake disaster in objectively. And, also, we think that it is important to understand that earthquake disaster must cope while warning such a disease in the whole Japan some other time in terms of age if and we will deepen analysis including having had what kind of disease till then more from now on during periods from hatsuwazawai to the death and we have earthquake disaster. 

 

Questions and answers

[about member of the House of Representatives general election]

(secretary company)

 Thank you. Do you think next time (October) though use of consumption tax goes up in big issue this time though we want to ask about opinion of the governor about the Lower House election made public on 10th that it is the LDP, constitutional amendment when what is asked in governor you, this Lower House election general election most?

 

Governor Kabashima

Governor Kabashima

 Voting behavior of people is very complicated. Voting behavior is not carried out only in issue.

 Comment from now wants to have you make all comment as political scientist. Where does political party belong to the biggest factor? It is issue next. Everybody votes for personality of candidate whether it is called thirdly personality including own network.

It is job performance evaluation of the government to think as issue that I am asked most now. One issue is incomprehensible very each. In recent study, job performance evaluation is the most plain. Saying if job performance evaluation of the ruling party in particular is plus, "do not change this flow to want you just to continue." If it is minus, naturally it becomes plain voting behavior "that you should change".

When we were asked all the time, this issue thinks that job performance evaluation of the government is asked most though of course individual issues may be serious matters. When the ruling party is dissolution, the present job performance evaluation is to be very good, and the ruling party is to make the debut for dissolution. Therefore I think whether it was not such a dissolution. But it is actually qualified voter that evaluates. When qualified voter evaluates, this is very important whether there is the saucer this time.

There was not saucer, and the ruling party dissolution was so at the time of the former LDP alliance system. However, as the saucer, the Democratic Party judges from the Democratic Party, form called the Democratic Party until now when it cannot become saucer (thing which there was at this time), and is it not the present situation that merged with hope (party)? Therefore qualified voter will judge whether hope (party) that was just complicated can become saucer.

Naturally opposition party denies business results of the government. But qualified voter cannot readily vote only by negation of achievements. Because the name is "hope", you must provide it whether makes future Japanese way filled with hope, what kind of Japan though it is very short period. Is it not this best highlight how it can give future image filled with negation positive hope of achievements?

 

(secretary company)

 So Party of Hope is constitutional amendment, or Party of Hope right thinks that it is place whether is consumption tax increase no to tell the difference in policy very similar to the LDP in situation called acceptance of the security treaty method pertinent law daringly though place whether saucer can be enough will become focus. Though it becomes conservative political party whether we may say that it is the right together, how about place whether this right consists as saucer of criticism vote?

 

Governor Kabashima

 It is that qualified voter judges. It is not that I judge.

 How do you take it out during another 18 days? Then it is division issue though it is individual issue that after all thing, such as the Japanese way of the whole said to become more important than individual issues, and to infiltrate change of government into and comb from now on in the negative as saucer political party whether it is evaluation of achievements or negation that worries as far as I see. If division issue does not so have difference, important thing is agreement issue. You find out agreement issue, "this is important" that everybody agrees, and will you do, "there are oneself (one) about it" as campaign from now on (you think)?

But it thinks that it may be that political party thinks about how you appeal not my saying to it too much as it may often become negative campaign though it may be unfavorable for the democratic way. As I have actually (by governor's race) made election (experience) three times (as political scientist), voting behavior of people thinks whether it came to be revealed a little than time when we studied theory of voting behavior.

 

(secretary company)

 I'm sorry, we would like only another one point. That, as for the candidate of Party of Hope, there are a great many Kanto, candidates of metropolitan area, and change the government in cooperation with Governor of Osaka Prefecture, Governor of Aichi more; is worked. Though there is very urban image, we say this Party of Hope now approval rating or go up though it will be expectation. As for this wind, how does the governor see influence in Kumamoto?

 

Governor Kabashima
Governor Kabashima
 Of course we think influence whether it is big in Tokyo in particular in the urban area. As single-seat constituencies is elected only one, we concentrate on. It tends to be squeezed in form whether everybody cooperates with one if possible, or unites by one.

 As it is different when electoral district is Kumamoto, we think whether it varies according to electoral districts each. When one ward is typical thing of fight of the LDP vs. hope (party), it is urban. So is it not that it is focused on two people and is competed?

  Important thing only thinks that cooperation and coalition in single-seat constituencies may influence coalition at the time of the government choice after election was over very much. For example, it may appear after the election some other time to say with coalition when it is place where we can send opposition candidate because it will not be probably united, do you say game of such a coalition? As it is qualified voter that actually decides it.

 Then there is part that it is not revealed whether the positive Yuriko Koike (Tokyo) governor actually appears in the House of Representatives for judgment materials from now on yet.

It is such a thing when we analyze this present as specialist in voting behavior as the governor now. Please if we have any question from the point of view.

 

(secretary company)

 It is to here first of all from secretary company.

 

Q

 Then though it is question from the (as specialist in voting behavior) point of view, there are revision of the Constitution and protection of the Constitution this time in kabashimariron, and various everyday theater advances to the moderation when we see movement of this Party of Hope though going thinks that there is what is easy to gather more votes while moving axis to revision of the Constitution than clearly this moderation. As a result, how about the neighborhood though we seem to perform this in that Party of Hope does not collect votes seeing from kabashimariron judging from theory though new power was created through form such as the Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan?

 

Governor Kabashima

 We like theory, or, except value judgment, it is far really whether you do not like, and, according to the pure theory top, are there another two ways (we think)?

 When, for hope (party), we may still take a certain vote toward the LDP. Therefore qualified voter who does not support the LDP even if we stop by in right (conservative) is such a judgment to have possibilities to follow oneself. It may be rational in its own right. Then there is such a way of thinking when, on the contrary, we stop by toward left (innovative) and stop at moderation in meaning that vote on the left than oneself acquires a lot, and it is to saucer of various places where it is more various as saucer.

Though it was after and should be able to read as what I took at the time of the first governor's race announced in Chuo Koron and was opened to the public, there were five candidates. It is person of the all conservatives. So I declined support and recommendation of the LDP daringly. And I stopped at the middle (moderation). I think so that I was able to take by 50% by stopping by midmost as liberal-like people voted for me a lot at that time by oneself. We might not take in large quantities (we did not do so) though we might be probably elected.

As we are judged under various suppositions, not the judgment of Koike being different from my theory, theory is one. Is how you judge in the theory not judgment of individual politicians? The judgment was not good, cannot say that was good.

 

Q

 That means, that vote considers that there is there more, and, as for Koike, about ten years ago fought in election the governor first and which just stopped at called so-called right when Koike judges in various ways take such an action; will be analyzed?

 

Governor Kabashima

 Is there less that and there is vote there and the left may hardly vote for oneself? But there is the Lower House election with single-seat constituency and proportional-representation constituency though it is plain because governor's race is a kind of presidential election. What kind of person is person who is not fixed only in ideology that this is complicated and is not decided only in political party because then I see very well?

 It will be job performance evaluation in issue. Plain. As think that do not have the time when go too deeply, around here.

 

Q

 Only as for one point that we do not finish. As you said job performance evaluation daringly, how do you evaluate evaluation of the Abe government for this three years nine months for the governor though we want to ask as the governor here?

 

Governor Kabashima

 At this stage, we refrain from evaluations. As we already began electoral campaign. Shall we do already around here?
 

(secretary company)

 Then this topic is this neighborhood.

 

Q

 I'm sorry. As it becomes only talk of election, we do, but. Such as coexistence of it being said with representative of situation that after all keeps the Tokyo metropolitan government for it though Koike Tokyo Governor launches party called Party of Hope this time though is to be just before, and there was movement taken office as to oneself representative and the government political party, by the way, is criticism; or such; though there were Governor Hashimoto, example of the Mayor of Osaka Hashimoto, as for such so-called chief standing on the top of political party though some says whether can be compatible, how does even the past Osaka look at such a movement some other time?

 

Governor Kabashima

 Because it is action based on personal judgment, we are not in a position to comment on it from me.

 

Q

 Governor you for such a viewpoint.

 

Governor Kabashima

 I do not take such a viewpoint and just do along it in representatives of citizen of the prefecture because maximization of happiness quantity of citizen of the prefecture is my big game.

Is it another 18 days (until election day)? As day of decision comes immediately, everybody, please try hard though the news will be serious from now on. To look at than we elect is fun (laugh).

 

(secretary company)

 Please if you have a question other than this matter. If there is not, it is over. Thank you.
