Dōshi Seisha

The Dōshi Seisha (Japanese: 同志政社, lit. Fellow Thinkers' Association) was a political party in Japan.


The party was established in December 1892 by 14 MPs who had left the Liberal Party after its leader, Hoshi Tōru had been impeached for corruption.[1] It was initially named the Dōshi Club (同志倶楽部), but was renamed Dōshi Seisha after becoming a political association.

It won 18 seats in the March 1894 elections. In May that year it merged with Dōmei Seisha to form Rikken Kakushintō.[1]
