Koike's new Party of Hope to be 'tolerant centrist party'

Draft party principles call for distancing itself from vested relationships

TOKYO -- Tokyo Gov. Yuriko Koike's newly established party will look to gain support from across the political spectrum, according to draft of party principles obtained by The Nikkei Tuesday.

The draft says Kibo no To, or the "Party of Hope," will "seek to become a tolerant centrist party that subsumes the fragmentation of society deepening throughout the world, including in Japan."
