Liberal Democratic Party takes 59 seats out of 127 in Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly election yesterday to take top spot


"All of the LDP’s 59 candidates won seats in the 127-member Tokyo assembly to regain the top spot. It was the party’s biggest victory in the metropolis since 2001.....Voter turnout, however, was a near record low at 43.50%. Calculations by the Tokyo Shimbun daily showed the LDP won 46.5% of the seats with 15 percent of all eligible votes."
