Komeito secures all 23 targeted seats in Tokyo assembly election

July 5 , 2021

All 23 Komeito candidates running in the single-chamber Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly election held on July 4 were voted into office. The Liberal Democratic Party, which cooperated with Komeito in the latest race, won 33 seats, making it the largest political party in the assembly.

Komeito thanked its supporters for making the victory possible, particularly as eight of 21 electoral districts (a number of them multiple-seat districts) in which the party’s candidates ran were seen to be hotly contested. The latest Tokyo election marked the eighth straight where every candidate fielded by the party was successfully voted in.
