TOKYO -- Yuriko Koike's newly established Kibo no To, or Party of Hope, on Tuesday announced 192 candidates for the general election on Oct. 22, including one specifically for the proportional representation list, while reiterating the Tokyo governor would not run herself.
The party accepted candidates from the Democratic Party running on their ticket, having earlier agreed to a de facto merger. Of the 192, 109 have come over from the Democrats and 52 were Diet members before the lower house was dissolved on Sept. 28, according to the party.
