2012年11月30日「モバイル英語学習」第173号(エッセイ): Elections in the world

******************
Japan is coming up to an election, and the U.S. has just had one. There is one very big difference between the elections, however. The United States has long election campaigns. The campaign for president is probably the longest in the world. People who want to be president start campaigning two years before the election. Japan has a very short campaign. It only lasts 12 days. Most other countries have longer campaigns, but Japan’s isn’t the shortest. Singapore’s election campaign only lasts 9 days.(by Prof. Douglas Jarrell)
