This website sets out the DPJ's position on constitutional revision. It proposes structural revision of the Diet and a clear delineation of role and structure of the treasury, establishes new guidelines for genetic technology and clearer guidelines regarding national defense. Regarding Article 9, DPJ states that its spirit – pacifism (平和主義) – should be preserved, but in order to exercise collective security (as stated in the U.N. Charter), Japan should specify its support for: 1. the UN's collective security activities; 2. a restricted right of self-defense; 3. maximized restriction on use of arms in the event of revision of Article 9. The DPJ also emphasizes the importance of new human rights, including the right to privacy and the right to information, respect for the principle of pacifism, the importance of specifying the idea of "civilian control" in the new constitution, and the need to clarify Japan's role in the UN's collective security activities.
