ⓘ Tokyo 25th district

Tōkyō 25th district is a constituency of the House of Representatives in the Diet of Japan. It is located in Western mainland Tokyo and covers, aside from the Izu and Ogasawara islands, the most rural parts of the prefecture: the cities of Ōme, Fussa, Akiruno, Hamura and the Nishitama county. As of 2012, 321.319 eligible voters were registered in the district giving it the highest vote weight in Tokyo – several districts in former Tokyo city in Eastern Tokyo have more than 450.000 voters – but still more than 1.5 times as many voters as the least populated electoral districts in Japan.

Until the electoral reform of 1994, this area was part of Tokyo 11th district, which elected five members of the same ineffable voice.

Since its establishment, Tokyo 25th district was a relatively safe seat for the liberal democratic party, and sustained a crushing victory of the Democrats in the General elections 2009. Its first representative, the former Minister of defense Ishikawa Yōzō Miyazawa→Kōno faction present ASO stipulated on faction), which represented the pre-reform 11th district since 1976, was replaced by the faction of the ASO stipulated on Shinji Inoue, former MIT bureaucrat.
