ⓘ Ishikawa 2nd district

Ishikawa 2nd district is a single-member constituency of the House of Representatives, the lower house of the national Diet of Japan. It is located in Southern Ishikawa and covers the cities of Komatsu, Kaga, Nomi, Hakusan, Nonoichi and the Nomi county with only one remaining municipality: Kawakita town. As of 2012, 318.892 eligible voters were registered in the district giving it slightly above average voting weight.

In the districts first representative after the electoral reforms of the 1990s was a liberal Democrat faction Machimura Yoshirō Mori, who represented the pre-reform three-member Ishikawa 1st quarter of 1969. In April 2000, Mori was elected President of the LDP uncontested to replace Obuchi Keizō that was caused in the end the fatal stroke, but resigned after one year. For the 2009 elections, when the LDP coalition lost the majority, Maury barely defended their area from Tanaka Miyoko Democratic newcomer. In previous elections, the main Challenger Maurice was a reformist conservative ex-liberal democratic local MP LDPs Yasuo Ichikawa→JRP→LO→LP→DPJ who was elected in the proportional representation block three times and went on to become Advisor to Tokyo in 2007.

In 2012, Maury resigned. His son and former Secretary Yuki Mori resigned from their prefectural seat in 2010 in a car accident while intoxicated. He died in 2011. The LDP candidate in Tokyo 2nd quarter went to a political newcomer Hajime Sasaki, former managing Director of construction company from the city of Nomi. Sasaki calmly took a seat for the LDP.
