WORLD PARTY JAPAN STATUTE

 

 

 

 

 

World Party Japan

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

PREAMBLE

 

 

            We the people are the World Citizen.  We heartily hope world peace and human happiness and believe that our duty is to establish the democracy in the world.  Our basic policy is to establish the World Federation.  Here, the World Federation is a worldwide federation composed of independent countries.

           The World Federation that we aim to establish is concerned with only the limited aspects of society.  Namely, in principle, it is concerned with only the administration of military force, the issuance of currency, and other political and economic problems that individual country cannot solve for itself.  Other aspects of society such as religion, political and economic system like liberalism or communism, industry, agriculture, commerce, science, arts, sports, tradition, and so on are left free to each country.  So, each country may declare either the liberalism or the communism.  Politics and religion are divided in the World Party Japan.  Religion is recognized as a private matter and so any religion is allowed in the World Party Japan.

            While there is an organization that is called the World Party, the World Party and the World Party Japan are, legally, mutually independent organizations.  While the World Party is a worldwide organization dedicated to the establishment of the World Federation, the World Party Japan is in a customary agreement with the World Party that the World Party Japan accomplishes the mission as a branch of the World Party.  Branches in other countries are in same agreement with the World Party.  So, the World Party can be called the international secretariat of the branches of the World Party.  But the World Party and the branch in each country are legally different organizations.  This was stipulated to avoid legal problems which may occur at the time of registration of each branch with the government office of each country.

            Basic policy of the World Party Japan is same as that of the World Party.  Namely, basic policy is to establish the World Federation.  But, as stipulated in the World Party Statute, each branch can have its own policy.  So, the World Party Japan has its own policies.
