Quotes

"I don't think Mr Nami is in a position to make a healthy evaluation of my candidacy. I say this because he constantly complains for not being part of the negotiations in the way that he wishes; he complains that I don't visit his office every other day; and plus his party will also nominate their candidate. So I don't think he is in a position to make a healthy evaluation. Therefore, I suggest that everyone stop acting and speaking emotionally and focus onon their own positions."
"If the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for 2012 to the European Union, why not Japan's Constitution; the world's only pacifist one?" Hamaji said
Murayama is proud of the way the Japanese abided by the pacifist Constitution. "This supreme law helped Japan shun conflicts and wars, such as those in the Korean Peninsula, Vietnam and the Gulf."
