Was there fraud in Japanese elections, giving pro nuclear party the win?

secret-agent-SmSource: Allegations of General Election Fraud on Dec. 16, 2012 in Japan 17 Jan 13, Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) won the majority of votes though they only had 14% of the vote.  The new Government started on Dec. 26, 2012, and the media said one of the reasons why LDP won was that there were too many new parties that support a nuclear free society.

Lots of voting places closed 1-4 hours earlier without any notice.  Normally in Japan about 60% of the population goes to vote but this time so many people said there were very long queues outside the building. 85% of the nation doesn’t want nuclear energy, yet none of the political parties that support a nuclear free society did not do well.  This does not sound right.

Furthermore one company called MUSASHI CO., LTD dealt with the whole election: from counting votes to publicity; there is speculation that this company has something to do with nuclear power.

Finally a written complaint of election fraud was submitted to the Tokyo High Court on Jan. 14th, 2013 and was accepted.  I hope justice will be done before next general election this summer.
