TOKYO, Nov. 15 (Xinhua) -- Tow members of Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) decided to quit the organization to express their strong opposition on Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda's plan to dissolve the House of Representatives on Friday.

Yoshitada Tomioka and Makoto Yamazaki have submitted their applications of withdrawing form the DPJ, and another representative named Osamu Nakagawa has made his decision of quitting.

"I think I could dissolve the lower house Friday if Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) President Shinzo Abe makes promises on cutting the number of lawmakers in the 480-seat lower house," Noda said on Thursday during a parliamentary debate with main opposition LDP.

Abe responded that the LDP would like to cooperate with DPJ on issuing the electoral system reform bill after the debate.

Against all DPJ members' resistance, Noda announced to dissolve the Diet arbitrarily, and it was so wrong, according to Tomioka.

Noda's Chief Cabinet Secretary Osamu Fujimura said he felt sorry about the members' quitting on a press conference Thursday.
