Hinata Socialist Party (HSP)

  • Electoral slogan: もっと民主を。社会党。(More democracy. Socialist Party)

The Socialists focused their electoral campaign on the promotion of a greater democratic culture in the country and on a generational change in politics with respect to the Nichirenists. Prior to the call for elections, the Socialists organized demonstrations throughout the island calling for the creation of a parliament and the holding of democratic elections. The socialist training also emphasized the protection of the environment, the development of basic infrastructures on the island and the promotion of agriculture.
