Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) as the primary opposition leader Hatoyama said that if DPJ win the power in the general-election in Aug., MSDF's refueling supports for OEF in Indian Ocean would end in Jan. when a "replenishment support special measures law" expires.

Leaving his opinion, I guess not replenishment supports has been effective under the inflexible law authorizing supports for only CTF 150.

* DPJ has been critical of the replenishment supports.
