Election Results: Gunma

While former Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda won his district 4 seat for the seventh time, former Finance Minister (under PM Shinzo Abe), Education Minister (under PM Junichiro Koizumi), and Director of the Economic Planning Agency Koji Omi lost his seat in district 1, a significant upset as, even in this table-turning election, real LDP heavyweights generally found their way back into the Diet, either by winning or through proportional representation. No such luck for Mr. Omi, who, given his advanced age, might now be looking at retirement.

On the whole, though, Gunma was a relative bright spot for the former ruling party, with big name Yuko Obuchi also winning her district 5 seat for the fourth time (albeit without running head to head against a DPJ candidate.)
