Succession Issues

Article from Lemonde.fr (in French):
http://www.lemonde.fr/web/dh/0,14-0@...3966097,0.html

It is said that the laws of succession could be modified in order to allow Princess Aiko of becoming Empress one day.

I really hope the law will be voted!

Oh, I am so happy for her and especially for her mother, who has been under such a great pressure to produce a male heir all these years.

Japan may let women take throne

Japan's ruling party is considering proposals to revise the constitution to let women take the throne, according to a draft seen by local media.

The proposal comes amid mounting unease that the current heir to the throne and his siblings have no male children.

The proposal is part of a wide-ranging review of Japan's constitution.

Also under discussion are controversial changes to extend the military's ability to act defensively when serving in missions overseas.

Analysts believe pressure on Princess Masako - the wife of the current heir to the throne - to bear a male heir has contributed to stress-related illnesses which have keep her out of the public eye for nearly a year.


Any changes at all are likely to alarm Japan's neighbours in the region, still scarred from the effects of Japanese militarism during World War II.

I'm afraid that including many changes in one constitutional review draft might kill it. When politicians try to hide controversial changes (such as the military's being allowed to act defensively here) with popular ones (like letting women access the throne), the good ones also die at vote time. It would be a shame for Aiko.

this is the 21st Century???

Japan needs to join the 21st Century on this!! They are at the forefront of so many things, but have 17th century attitudes about women.

There should be no problem with Princess Aiko ascending the throne. Change the laws of succession please in the constitution!!!

P.S. don't sneak in any sneaky proposals about the military while drafting these changes for the Japanese constitution. One thing they should rid themselves of with the new changes is abolish the Imperial Household Agency!!!:p

The empire of the daughter
By Our Foreign Staff
Japan should consider allowing women to become reigning empresses, a government panel has advised, opening a public debate on the future of the oldest monarchy.

Panel report favors female emperor in Japanwww.chinaview.cn 2005-07-26 19:36:47
TOKYO, July 26 (Xinhuanet) -- A report delivered by a government-backed panel on Tuesday said that a female should be allowed access to the throne.

Way paved for empress of Japan

Japan moved a step closer to ending centuries of tradition - and solving a looming succession crisis - when a government panel said women should be allowed to sit on the throne.

I sure hope it happens for Aiko. Otherwise Her uncle Prince Akishino will be next and then try to change the laws to favor his oldest daughter.

No male apparent, Japan mulls princess for throne

TOKYO(Agence France-Presse) -- A government-appointed panel said this week that letting a woman ascend the Japan- ese throne was one option to avert an imperial succession crisis, but added that there needs to be more debate about the idea, which is supported by much of the public.

Finally! Now, Aiko will have the same opportunity as a brother/uncle to be empress. It is her birthright. I hope she'll be 2nd in the line of succession.

That being said, I think Liechtenstein should also review their succession laws.

Just another link to add. :)

I sure hope Japan allows for sweet Aiko to rule. Tradition is wonderful, but if it's a choice between tradition and the line dying out, or going in a newer direction and allowing the line to continue - then I think the Japanese would be wise to go with the latter.
