Background: Mr. Tetsuzo Fuwa, Chief of the Secretariat of the Japan Communist Party (JCP), attended a lunch in Tokyo on Wednesday 24th April given in his honour by The Foreign Press in Japan at their Pressclub in central Tokyo.
Despite a rapid growth of the Party following their re-legalisation after the war (they had been banned and persecuted immediately before) the JCP still holds a relatively small percentage of sets in the Japanese Diet (Parliament) and is not a major factor in Japanese politics.
The only real impact they have on Japanese political life is to prevent the formation of an effective opposition coalition strong enough to oust the strongly-entrenched Japanese Liberal Democratic Party (LDP). They cannot agree with the Japanese socialist parties for long enough to put up a united front.
The JCP at present is forced to restrict itself to act as a focus for the more radical political malcontents in japan, and to promoting relations with communists-ruled countries abroad and at home. The latest such trip headed by Fuwa was to Hanoi on March 7th 1974.
