In July, 2012, Ozawa left the DPJ along with 49 other lawmakers, due to a disagreement over a rise in the sales tax. Ozawa is expected to form his own party.

Famous quotes containing the words people, life and/or party:

    It is humiliating to remain with our hands folded while others write history. It matters little who wins. To make a people great it is necessary to send them to battle even if you have to kick them in the pants. That is what I shall do.
    Benito Mussolini (1883–1945)

    Most people get a fair amount of fun out of their lives, but on balance life is suffering, and only the very young or the very foolish imagine otherwise.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)

    We are in a period when old questions are settled and the new are not yet brought forward. Extreme party action, if continued in such a time, would ruin the party. Moderation is its only chance. The party out of power gains by all partisan conduct of those in power.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)
