The lower house passed a key government bill late Monday to scale back the privatization of the postal system effected following the 2005 election, amid increasing political speculation in the run-up to an upper house election expected in July.

The bill cleared the House of Representatives in a plenary session that ran into the night with support from the ruling coalition after it killed opposition motions against the farm minister and a committee chairman. The government aims to enact it through the House of Councillors by the June 16 end of the current Diet session.

The motion against farm minister Hirotaka Akamatsu was submitted by four opposition parties for what they say was the government’s slow response to the foot-and-mouth disease outbreak in southwestern Japan, coalition lawmakers said.
