Ishihara re-elected in Japan
by UPI

TOKYO - Tokyo Gov. Shintaro Ishihara Sunday won a third four-year term by a landslide.

Ishihara, 74, was unofficially backed by the ruling Liberal Democratic Party and the Komeito Party, the Mainichi Daily News reported. He defeated four other candidates, including former Miyagi Gov. Shiro Asano, 59, who was supported by the Democratic Party of Japan.

Ishihara, a former novelist, drew support for luring the 2016 Olympics to Tokyo and deflected recent criticism for appointing one of his sons to a government post and for spending tax money on his overseas business trips.
