東京——為了挽救本黨頹勢,日本首相野田佳彥(Yoshihiko Noda)棋出新招,似乎有可能宣布,日本意圖加入一個宏圖遠大的泛太平洋自由貿易協定,而後宣布舉行選舉,並將加入協定作為民主黨的競選綱領之一。
日本一直對是否加入《泛太平洋夥伴關係協定》(Trans-Pacific Partnership)左右搖擺,該協定遭到受到重度保護的日本農民的反對,但獲得了消費者和工業集團的支持。有關政府意向的報道出現在大多數主要的日本媒體上,由此暗示了野田佳彥所在的民主黨(Democratic Party)已經作出了協調一致的努力,開始釋放有關戰略轉向的信號。
日本國家戰略擔當相前原誠司(Seiji Maehara)也表示,加入該協定將成為“民主黨的公開承諾,也應該是民主黨角逐大選的主要議題。”
加入該協定也可能將日本最大的反對黨,目前在民調之中領先的自由民主黨(Liberal Democratic Party)置於不利的政治位置。自民黨一直避免在加入協定問題上採取明確立場,原因是他們試圖保持農民和大企業的支持,傳統上,這兩者是自民黨最大的支持群體。新聞報道說,野田佳彥可能希望藉此逼迫自民黨明確表態,從而對反對黨構成損害。
