JP: CrowdfundingXPolitics”PushUP”

Great Effort. Crowdfunding meets Politics. At the end of the day it has been very difficult to change the politics scene in the Japanese exisiting institutions formed by old controlling party.Deregulation concerning Politics is still underway in Japan. At the Upper House Election held last month online election campaings has been allowed. However, the response is so limited that online users meaning young population do not vote anyway. I strongly believe that it takes time to penetrate the change and needs multiple approaches to make it happen. Any candidates could put up and promote himself to collect the funding for the campaign. Anybody donetes for any candidate. The number of candidates as well as money raised is limited but this is a great effort and a good start.
