TOKYO -- Japan's Liberal Democratic Party will be tested on whether it can maintain another clear majority by winning more than 233 seats in lower house elections set for Sunday, according to the latest Nikkei poll. Results of the survey mirror those of last week.
The elections held on Oct. 31 will be the first since LDP leader Fumio Kishida was elected Japan's latest prime minister. Together with coalition partner Komeito, the LDP is poised to at least hold onto power. The Japan Restoration Party is expected to gain seats and compete with Komeito as a third party.
