In Japan, new electoral system is introduced in The House of Representative, but the procedure of reapportionment and redistricting follow the principles of former system. Under non-transferable single voting system, this problem transforms the apportionment into the districting in quality. For something unsatisfactory of legislative procedure, Equality of the franchise is not realizable.
By contrast with this, the redistricting procedure renewed after apportionment revolution in 1964 in United states of America. Now that the equal-population principle has become established constitutional doctrine for state legislative representation and congressional districting, the relationship of representative government should be examined anew.
This paper seeks and suggest to legislative procedures to ensure “strict and fair” redistricting through states constitutions in America.
