Jiji reports that the Tanigaki group within LDP has backed Fumio Kishida in the LDP leadership race but allowed its members to vote for other candidates if they so wish.

  • The Tanigaki group is a minor faction originally led by Sadakazu Tanigaki, who was LDP President before Shinzo Abe and retired from politics in 2016 due to serious injury.
  • Former Defence Minister Gen Nakatani of the Tanigaki group said last week that he would support Kishida would seek to persuade his faction colleagues to follow suit.
  • The group consists of around 20 lawmakers, although some of them belong to other groups as well.
