Most Japanese wary of security reform

TOKYO -- Most Japanese neither support the passage of new defense legislation this Diet session nor feel that the government has adequately explained the proposed changes, a weekend poll by Nikkei Inc. and TV Tokyo shows.

     Only 25% of respondents wanted legislation allowing the use of collective self-defense to be passed this session, down 4 points from the last poll in April. Those opposing such developments rose 3 points to 55%, demonstrating persistent doubts among the general public over security-related reforms.
