日本が直面する少子高齢社会、中高年が多くを占める政治の場に、若い世代の声はなかなか届きません。戦後変わらない立候補年齢は若者の政治参加を制限し、社会の一員として政治に関わることを難しくしています。長期的な視点を持った10代・20代の声が届く政治は、日本をもっと持続可能で、生きやすい社会にします。若い世代の声が届く社会に向けて、私たちは立候補年齢の引き下げを提案します。 In Japan’s aging society, where the older generation dominates the political arena, it is difficult for the voices of the younger generation to be heard. The unchanged age of candidacy since the post-war era restricts young people’s political participation and makes it difficult for them to engage in politics. A politics that embraces the voices of teenagers and people in their 20s with a long-term perspective will create a more sustainable and livable society in Japan. In pursuit of a society where the voices of the younger generation are heard, we propose lowering the age of candidacy.


Report on the date of the first oral argument

2023/10/12 13:16






The first oral argument was held at 11:00 a.m. today (October 12, 2023) in Courtroom 703 of the Tokyo District Court.

The plaintiffs filed a complaint, and the state filed an answer. The state's answer is before the merits of the case (as a premise for discussing whether the 25 and 30 age provisions are contrary to the Constitution, it is an argument that the plaintiff's complaint does not meet the procedural requirements for proceeding with the trial in the first place) ).

The court instructed the government to submit its argument on the merits (the country's argument that the provision does not violate the Constitution) by December 8.

In front of a full audience, plaintiff Momoko Nojo , plaintiff Chico. , and attorney Toda made statements to the judge.

The next hearing will be held on December 25th at 2:00 pm in Courtroom No. 703. I hope you will be able to listen next time.
