Strength of in-house groups in House of Councillors

LDP Upper House member Takagai Emiko has automatically lost her Upper House seat because she is running for a seat in the proportional representation Chugoku bloc in the Lower House election, which was announced on Oct. 19. The LDP’s Takeuchi Isao, who was a runner-up in the proportional representation segment of the 2016 Upper House race, is expected to move up to take Takagai’s place soon.
