The ruling Seiyukai Party led by Prime Minister Tanaka Giichi won narrowly 1 seat against the opposition Minsei Party, which was led by Hamaguchi Osachi. Besides, neither Seiyukai or Minsei had an overall majority. As a result, a hung parliament was eventually produced. The turnout of the election was 80.36%. 12,409,078 men voted in the election. On the other hand, after the assassination of the Manchurian warlord Zhang Zuolin and the eventual resignation of Tanaka followed, a new Government will be formed under opposition leader Hamaguchi Osachi as the new Prime Minister in 1929.
