Yomiuri wrote that at least 33 prefectural chapters of the ruling LDP, including Tokyo, Kanagawa, Aichi, and Hiroshima, are leaning toward holding primary elections involving rank-and-file members to choose the next party president. The results of the closed primaries will be reflected in the voting of three delegates of each prefecture in the leadership election on Sept. 14 involving all 394 LDP Diet members. As the party headquarters is set to finance the prefectural primaries, additional local chapters may decide to hold them.
