the Lower House election in Japan

There was the lower house election in Japan on the August 30th. The ruling party, Liberal Democratic Party which has been a ruling party more than 50 years suffered a crushing defeat. An opposition party, the Democratic Party of Japan will be a ruling party in September due to the result of election. This is an extraordinary event in Japanese politics.

This doesn’t mean that Japanese people aren’t agree with the Democratic Party’s policies, they just disgusted with the Liberal Democratic Party, which cause people to vote to the Democratic Party.

A two-party system has started to work, but it is in its infancy.
