LDP candidate wins Kumamoto low
Eiichi Iwashita (C), the candidate on the ticket of the
Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), won a House of Representatives
by-election June 14, despite opposition candidates' criticism of the
economic policy of LDP leader Prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto. The
photo shows Iwashita, 51, raising his hands and shouting ''banzai''
after winning the poll in the southwestern Japan prefecture. The
seat was vacated when former Prime Minister Morihiro Hosokawa
resigned as a lower house member.
