All 21 JCP candidates win in local elections

March 30, 2021

All 21 candidates of the Japanese Communist Party won in local elections on March 28.

The JCP increased its local assembly seats by six from its pre-election strength. Seven cities out of the nine local city assembly elections taking place on the day, except for one assembly where a JCP candidate was elected uncontested, the party increased the number of votes cast for JCP candidates. The party obtained assembly seats in two cities where it previously had no seats.

In the Shizuoka City Assembly election, the JCP secured four seats, up one seat from its pre-election strength, and gained the right to submit bills to the assembly. In Saitama's Fujimi City Assembly election, the JCP also increased its number of seats by one to four. In Nara's Kashiba City Assembly election where the party lost both its seats in the previous election, the JCP gained back two seats.
