Election of Osaka Prefecture’s governor

Today people of Osaka Prefecture are voting a candidate of the governor of Osaka Prefecture. The candidates include Toru Hashimoto, an attorney, Sadatoshi Kumagai, an ex-professor of Osaka University, and Shoji Umeda, an attorney.

Hashimoto seems to be of great advantage to others because he often appears on TV and is the most well-known to people. But, in my personal feelings, I want Kumagai to win the election, because I had his “circuit theory” seminar when I was a university student 15 years ago and I’m familiar with him very much.

Actually anybody is ok as I’m not an Osaka resident and I don’t have the right to vote.
