Yoichi Masuzoe, a former health minister backed by Japan's ruling party, won Tokyo's gubernatorial election on Sunday, defeating two candidates who had promised to end nuclear power. The ballot was widely seen as a test for Japan's public opinion on atomic power in a nation shaken by the Fukushima nuclear disaster. According to NHK exit polls Masuzoe garnered about 30 percent of the vote. Tetsuro Kato, professor of political science at Waseda University in Tokyo, said that the anti-nuclear vote suffered because voters could not agree on one candidate.
