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.
