The government plans to include a provision to secure the public’s right to know in a bill designed to protect state secrets, officials said Saturday.

The move is in response to a demand from New Komeito, the junior coalition partner of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party.

On Friday, Yosuke Isozaki, special adviser to the prime minister, proposed the plan to Yoshinori Oguchi, head of a New Komeito project team on the matter.

The government plans to adopt the bill on Oct. 22 to strengthen punishments for public servants who leak state secrets on foreign policy and security affairs.
