Japan's Party of Hope is the new party led by Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike

I posted earlier with headlines on the party platform:

Reuters have gathered together a bit of a recap here: Tokyo governor's new party vows to scrap over-reliance on fiscal, monetary steps

The main salient points:

  • cut reliance on fiscal spending and monetary easing
  • freeze scheduled sales tax hike in 2019
  • end nuclear power by 2030
  • "While maintaining the Bank of Japan's massive monetary easing for the time being, the government and the BOJ should work together to seek a smooth exit strategy"

Their eco approach is dubbed "Yurinomics", which is derived from Koike's first name. I suppose that's better than "Kookynomics"
