This site states Nakayama's views toward constitutional revision, and explains the general proceedings and background of the Research Commission on the Constitution. It states that the current constitution leaves too much scope for interpretation leading to contradictions between the constitution and actions (as in the case when the Supreme Court justified an obviously unconstitutional decision of lowering the salary of all judges in Japan.) The site also explains how the Research Commission studied foreign constitutions and found that all had revised their constitutions. It argues against allowing citizens to vote for the prime minister (首相公選制), using Israel & England as examples, and also claims the need for heightened awareness and interest of the public in constitutional revision.
