On Oct. 12, the Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan (CDPJ) announced its first list of officially endorsed candidates for the single-seat constituency segment of the Lower House election. The party will support 214 candidates in single-member districts. Of the 214 candidates, 105 are current Lower House members, 25 are past members, and 84 are first-time candidates. CDPJ Secretary-General Fukuyama Tetsuro held a press conference and said that the CDPJ is “in the middle of discussions” with the Japanese Communist Party to support the same candidates in districts where a close race is expected with the ruling parties.
