The Liberal Democratic Party handily wrapped up the Lower House election Sunday even as many voters said they were driven by lack of choice rather than enthusiasm for the conservative party headed by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Aside from its hard-core supporters, several people interviewed by The Japan Times after casting ballots in Tokyo and Osaka were resigned to yet another LDP victory, while others stuck to their guns and supported the opposition.

A 67-year-old housewife in the western Tokyo suburb of Mitaka who only wanted to be identified by her surname, Abe, said she voted for an LDP candidate because she feels the party has the best shot at delivering on its pledges.
