Election Day April 7th

[I wish the photos were better.]
It is election day here. Before election day cars go around with loud speakers. The photos shows the cars of two candidates from the Jimintou Party. This is the same party as the Prime Minister Abe. The first picture is of Hirai Machiko. She is speaking across the street. She is the one in the sash. She is running for the city council and  this is her third election. The second picture is for Kawabe Nobihiro. He is running for the Prefecture Assembly and is a new candidate.  He is the one across the street wearing a sash. Both candidates are using their campaign cars’ loud speaker to amplify their speeches so I wanted to show you the set up.

(Sorry these web pages are in Japanese.)

The first candidate. 

The second candidate.

    Sounds damned annoying to me. Politicians are obnoxious enough as it is without the bonus feature of their obnoxiousness amplified and broadcast in the streets.

    Both candidates won their elections.

    Does that indicate popular support for Prime Minister Abe?

    I don’t know if local elections indicate that. I don’t follow Japanese politics very much.
