Are your figures from after the polls closed and the official figures were given? Or from hours before the actual percentage was known?

Koike has been pronounced the winner.

Last I saw the 40% of eligible voters voted up 6% from the last election. Congratulations to Koike the first woman governor of Tokyo.

Voter turnout was 59.73%.
