This website explains Komeitō's "strengthening the constitution" (加憲 kaken) position on constitutional revision. The party holds that Japan should respect the current constitution, especially the three principles – popular sovereignty, permanent pacifism, and fundamental human rights – while making changes to adapt to the new challenges of the 21st century. The party holds that new rights (such as those regarding environmental rights and privacy) should be added. The party also holds that the right of collective self-defense should not be included in the revised constitution. Other topics include education, prefectural governance, and the national referendum. The Komeitō Party believes that a national referendum to approve or reject a new constitution should be based on approval or rejection of specific articles, not on the draft in its entirety.
