Dōmei Seisha

The Dōmei Seisha (Japanese: 同盟政社, lit. Union Association) was a political party in Japan.

HistoryEdit

The party was established as the Dōmei Club (同盟倶楽部) in November 1892 by a group of 24 mostly independent MPs.[1] It gradually became closer to the Rikken Kaishintō, and in January 1894 was renamed the Dōmei Seisha after becoming a political association.

The party won 24 seats in the March 1894 elections, and in May that year it merged with Dōshi Seisha to form Rikken Kakushintō.[1]
