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.
