Coalitions are a product of the need for working majorities in parliamentaryCabinet systems. Parties do not normally enter them by choice, but out of necessity. 3 The three-way coalition lasted until the Lower House (House of Representatives) elections of October 1996, when the LDP just fell short of regaining its majority. The shortfall in seats saw the LDP continuing a parliamentary alliance with the Socialists and Sakigake until September 1997, by which time it had attracted a sufficient number of Lower House Diet members back into its ranks to regain a majority.

It reached the height of its popularity at the House of Councillors elections of July 1995,2 but subsequently suffered a steady trickle of defections and was beset Electoral pressures for change 17 by increasingly difficult problems of internal cohesion.
