The ruling party in Japan, the Liberal Democratic Party, is going to elect its new leader today i.e. on September 29. The LDP enjoys a majority in the Parliament. Because of this also the next Prime Minister is sure to be from this party. But this time there are four contenders and it will be interesting to see who wins this time. Not only this, this time out of the four contenders in the race, two are female candidates. It will be the first time that if one of these two wins, Japan’s first woman will become prime minister.

In fact, the party’s election campaign officially started only a few days after Suga’s announcement. The country’s popular Vaccine Minister Taro Kono and the generally calm former Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida came first in the race for the Prime Minister’s post. By the way, this time two women candidates are also involved in the race for the post of Prime Minister. Their names are Seiko Noda and Son Takaichi.

However, due to their inclusion in the race, there is a lot of discussion about poor female representation in Japanese politics. But Japanese political pundits believe that the two female candidates do not have enough support to become the country’s first female prime minister and that their candidacy is only a quorum of female representation.
