A political school, which was established before the "Hope Party" was formed, held its final lecture on 17th February.
Mr. Wakasa, a founder of this school, announced its closing after all lectures.
It ended without fostering any member of parliament after only 5 months since its start. Some participants complained, "it was a debacle".

希望の党結党に先立ち、小池百合子東京都知事の後ろ盾を得て若狭勝元衆院議員が立ち上げた政治塾「輝照塾」が17日、最終講義を行った。若狭氏は終了後に「閉塾」を宣言。塾生から国会議員を輩出することなく、開講からわずか5カ月での幕引きに、参加者からは「大失敗だった」との恨み節も漏れた。
