Okinawa gubernatorial election candidate Denny Tamaki automatically lost a parliamentary seat in the House of Representatives on Sept. 13. The Liberal Party had only two Lower House members, Tamaki and Ichiro Ozawa. But a parliamentary group cannot be formed by just one Diet member, which made Ozawa an independent. The strength of parliamentary groups in the Lower House is now as follows:

 

Liberal Democratic Party

283

Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan and Citizens Club

Democratic Party for the People and Club of Independents
