The Japan News

The Liberal Democratic Party’s sole candidate in Sunday’s House of Representatives midterm elections is leading the opposition candidate, according to The Yomiuri Shimbun’s analysis of his reporting and a telephone survey. The opposition Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan is leading in all three by-elections for lower house seats.

The Yomiuri Shimbun conducted the survey from Friday to Sunday using random numbers and received responses from 2,044 people.

In Shimane Constituency No. 1, which includes Matsue, the LDP’s Norimasa Nishikori, backed by Komeito, hands the leadership to CDPJ’s Akiko Kamei. Kamei is supported by 90% of CDPJ supporters, almost 70% of Nippon Ishin (Japan Innovation Party) supporters and almost 40% of independent voters. Nishikori is supported by 70% of LDP supporters and 70% of Komeito supporters, but only 10% of independent voters.

In Tokyo Constituency No. 15, which covers Koto Ward, six candidates are running for opposition and minor parties, and three are independent. Natsumi Sakai of the CDPJ took the lead, followed by Yui Kanazawa of the Nippon Ishin. More than 40% of independent voters have not yet made a decision.

In Nagasaki Constituency No. 3, there is an opposition match between Katsuhiko Yamada of the CDPJ and Shoichiro Inoue of the Nippon Ishin, with Yamada in the lead.
