    Japan's Multimember SNTV System and Strategic Voting: The 'M + 1 Rule' and Beyond.Patrick Fournier & Masaru Kohno - 2000 - Japanese Journal of Political Science 1 (2):275-293.
    Since the early 1990s, Steven Reed and Gary Cox have changed our understanding of Japan's multimember SNTV electoral system, by highlighting its institutional effects similar to what is known as Duverger's law in the Anglo-American context. While we offer some additional evidence to consolidate their findings, we also address an issue left unexplored in these studies, namely the role of partisan information. Under Japan's system, party labels matter in elections. We show that, while Japanese voters are generally willing to abandon (...)

    Japan's Multimember SNTV System and Strategic Voting: A Rejoinder.Patrick Fournier & Masaru Kohno - 2001 - Japanese Journal of Political Science 2 (2):241-242.
    Five major claims are made in our paper on strategic voting within the context of Japan's multimember single non-transferable vote (SNTV) electoral system (Fournier and Kohno, 2000). Two claims deal with the reconciliation of Steven Reed's (1990) and Gary Cox's (1997) important work on extending Duverger's law to the Japanese case, and three claims deal with the informational effects of partisan labels on strategic voting.

    On April 5 2000, the Diet elected Yoshiro Mori as Japan's 55th prime minister. His predecessor, Keizo Obuchi, had suffered a stroke and became unable to carry out his official responsibility.

    Executive Turnovers in 2002.Masaru Kohno & Jun Mizutani - 2002 - Japanese Journal of Political Science 3 (2):275-279.
    From the latter half of 2001 to the middle of 2002, prime minister Junichiro Koizumi was plagued by a series of scandals and administrative mishandlings, which led to some important executive turnovers. Although Koizumi has thus far upheld his principle of for the sake of policy stability, his campaign promise not to reshuffle cabinet has already been compromised somewhat, and is likely to be abandoned entirely in the near future.
