Governor Kada seeks for the second term

On February 16 at the prefectural assembly, Governor Kada expressed her desire to run for the next gubernatorial election held in July. "Let me expand the possibility of Shiga, and let me lead the prefecture again to embody the society full of hope, based on the spirit of mottainai," says the 59-year-old governor who first made the official statement regarding the next election.

Governor Kada was supported by the Social Democratic Party when she was first elected in 2006. However, she will not be asking existing political parties to support her, saying that she belongs to "Kenmin (people of the prefecture) Party" to gather large public support.

Aside from the incumbent governor, the Japanese Communist Party has already expressed its plan to back up a candidate for the election.
