Two candidates with identical names have defied voter confusion to both win election to Karatsu city council in southern Japan.
Both men are named Shigeru Aoki. There can be many ways to write a name in Japanese with the same pronunciation, but in this case the pair use the same Chinese characters, or kanji.
They could not even be distinguished by party, since both ran as independents.
