It is worth noting that the other two factions of the LDP, the second-class faction and the Shiyuan faction, have also expressed their support for Kan Yiwei. These two factions have 47 members of Parliament and 11 members of Parliament respectively, but the two groups did not attend the above joint press conference. A reporter on the scene asked whether the absence of the second-class faction and the Shiyuan faction means that the various factions in the LDP have been competing for the leading power after the birth of the future Kan Yiwei government. Taro Aso denied this.
Kan Yiwei, born in 1948, does not belong to any faction of the LDP at present, the report said. However, as an old powerful member of Parliament who has been re elected for eight terms, Kan Yiwei is surrounded by a kan group composed of 30 or 40 younger generation members without faction.
Kan Yiwei runs for president of the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan
