The paper is organized as follows. First, we describe the nomination processes in the two countries (sections 2 and 3). Next we compare the countries with respect to the characteristic that most clearly distinguishes them, the mobility of SMD candidates in Italy and their stability in Japan (section 4). In section 5 we ask why the nomination processes under such similar systems differed so widely. We analyze differences in the details of the two electoral systems (section 6) but argue that the difference was not to be found in the details but in the context and that the context was determined by historical experience (section 7).

Abstract

The paper is organized as follows. First, we describe the nomination processes in the two countries (sections 2 and 3). Next we compare the countries with respect to the characteristic that most clearly distinguishes them, the mobility of SMD candidates in Italy and their stability in Japan (section 4). In section 5 we ask why the nomination processes under such similar systems differed so widely. We analyze differences in the details of the two electoral systems (section 6) but argue that the difference was not to be found in the details but in the context and that the context was determined by historical experience (section 7).
