CPV delegation learns about JCP activities centering on Akahata in Kyoto

December 8, 2019
The delegation of the Communist Party of Vietnam participating in the latest theoretical exchange with the Japanese Communist Party on December 6 met with the JCP prefectural organization in Kyoto City to learn about how the JCP creates good relations with local people based on Akahata.

CPV delegation head Nguyen Xuan Thang, secretary of the CPV Central Committee and chairman of the Central Theoretical Council, referred to the two parties’ ninth theoretical exchange meeting in Tokyo, and said that it motivated him to learn about JCP activities at the grassroots level. He put to JCP prefectural organization members some questions such as about community branch meetings and efforts to connect with Kyoto citizens.

JCP prefectural body head Watanabe Toshikazu explained that the party is linked with the general public by putting Akahata delivery and subscription fee collection on the axis of party activities. Watanabe also pointed out that JCP branches in districts, workplaces and campuses engage in day-to-day activities and party-building efforts in a combined manner and that JCP local assembly members work hard jointly with party branches in their municipalities to realize residents’ demands.

Watanabe said that the JCP in Kyoto has been developing collaboration even with conservative people and increasing its credibility among Kyoto citizens. Citing the Kyoto City mayoral election scheduled for next year, Watanabe expressed his determination to make his utmost efforts to bring down the incumbent mayor who is supported by the Liberal Democratic and Komei parties.
