Your Party (みんなの党 Minna no Tō?, literally "Everyone's party") is a center-right Japanese political party. Led by Yoshimi Watanabe, who split from the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), the party was founded on August 8, 2009 after then-Prime Minister Aso dissolved the lower house. A concept behind the party is to make the government more democratic, and to eliminate control of the government by non-elected members established in the bureaucracy. In this respect Watanabe has repeatedly stated that his position is compatible with the Democratic Party of Japan.

However, in most other respects, such as its favorable view toward lower taxation, free enterprise, smaller government and less regulation, the party is naturally allied with the conservative camp of the Liberal Democratic Party.

The party fielded 13 candidates in the August 2009 general elections.[1] Five of those candidates were elected to the lower house. In the Japanese House of Councillors election, 2010, it gained 10 seats[2]. It also made gains at the Japanese unified regional elections, 2011.[1]
