Thinking about Japan's future #1

Hi, I'm Haruyo.

I was shocked by the news saying "the new top five members of Japan's new government including new prime minister are around 71 years old on average." The oldest person is 81 years old, and he has had a lot of authority for ages. Can you believe this? Although in other countries there are younger prime minister in thirties, older person are still elected in Japan.
I can never think those will be able to make Japan much better in this global society.

The other day I wondered why younger prime minister doesn't come in Japan and found a article that may help answer this question.
According to it, first, the young of assembly are much less than in other countries. Why? It's because you need lots of money when you're trying to run for election, even a election of city. The figure says that the cost for election in Japan is three times higher than other countries.
No wonder the number of the young in assembly is little.
There is a reason why it much costs. That's because of stopping many people from trying to running for.  I don't know when this rule was set but I think it doesn't suit this time.

That's all for today. I'll write more next time.

昨日の、新しい人事を見て衝撃を受けました。
国のトップ5人の平均年齢が71歳ですって。最高年齢は81歳。
この人はずーーーーーーっと権力を握っている。
70歳の人たちが、このグローバルな世界で日本を正しい方向に導けるとは到底思えない。
世界では30代の若い首相が誕生しているのに‥‥
先日、なんで日本には30代の若い首相が生まれないのか、を分析していた記事を見た。
まず日本には若い議員の数が他の国と比べて少ない。
それはなぜか?議員として選ばれるために勝つ選挙、その選挙に多大なお金がかかるからだ。
これは一応、立候補の乱立を防ぐためにあえてお金がかかるようにされているらしい。
いつの時代に作られたルールかは分からないけど、今の時代にはとても逆行しているとしか思えない。

今日はここまで。続きはまた次回!
