A little math problem from the LDP election results

197 total votes for Secretary-General Aso Tarō

- 65 votes from the prefectures

- 16 votes from the Aso Faction

- 73 votes from all the LDP Diet members not in factions, assuming they all voted for Aso, which they did not,

means at least


43 disloyal, naughty little faction members.

How are they naughty? Is there some evidence that faction members were required to vote anything but their own preference?

Ross -

I think my negative assessment arises from the fact that factions are not described in the Liberal Democratic Party constitution.
