As many as 16 political parties will field candidates in the Dec 16 election. Why are there so many?

    Japan is a democracy and so allows for a mutli-party systems. That's fine.

    They should do away with the parties and just run as candidates.

    Im not sure why there are that many parties. But I do know that with so many parties which ever one wins, nothing will never get done because of the bickering between the parties that follows. The only thing that happens is a power struggle to dethrone the current ruling party. And then the cycle starts over again.
