News Insight:What is "Ippyou no Kakusa"?

[ Ippyou no Kakusa : disparity in the relative weight of one vote ] Malapportionment, or unequal representation in a representative body, violates some voters' rights to equal treatment under the law. For example, if one geographic district has 10,000 voters and another has 100,000 voters, voters in the former district have ten times the influence, per person, over the governing body.
The effect might not be just a vague empowerment of some voters but a systematic bias to the nation's government. Internationally, malapportionment results when large, sparsely populated rural regions are given equal representation to densely packed urban areas.
