This year's 'AKB48 General Elections' to be held in Niigata + Mukaichi Mion announced center for 44th single
March 21, 2016

"AKB48 45th Single General Election" ("The 8th AKB48 General Election" will take place on June 18th at HARD OFF ECO Stadium Niigata in Niigata City. This became known on March 21 during a photo session event for "AKB48 0 to 1 no Aida" at Pacifico Yokohama.

As many of you may know, this is AKB48's biggest annual event. For this year's election, a total of 80 members from 5 groups are eligible to enter to be in the running for senbatsu for AKB48's 45th single.

Just like last year, the election will be held in the candidacy system. Members of AKB48, SKE48, NMB48, HKT48, and NGT48, as well as former AKB48 members who transferred to its overseas sister group (Nakagawa Haruka and Chikano Rina), are eligible to stand as a candidate. The reception desk period for the candidacy will be during March 23 at 4:00 pm to March 27 at 10:00 pm. Further details will be revealed in the coming days.

Sashihara Rino, who stood on top at last year's election, commented, "I kept thinking that this announcement would be made, but now, I feel like its finally come! Just when I have to sell my photo book!! I have a lot to think about. I will think about what to do [stand as a candidate or not] after this." She continued, "Everyone! First, please buy my photo book 'Scandal Chuudoku'!"

During this event, it was also announced that AKB48 Team K's Mukaichi Mion would serve as center for the group's 44th single (currently untitled) to be released on June 1.

Milky one was hinting towards it a while back although it seems the importance for the well-known members below a certain level don't need it as much as others.  Waiting for the random ones again :lol:

I'm hoping all my SKE oshis rank.  This means I want to avoid another Akarin meltdown like last year.

Back in Texas >_<

Shibata Aya will not be participating: https://twitter.com/_shibata_aya/status/713673019546152960

This will definitely help Suda Akari to get back into the top 16.

It seems like a lot of members who normally rank are just opting out.  This is making it less interesting.  If Akarin decides to participate, she may return to senbatsu.

My friend offered to try and get me a ticket to the senbatsu/concert in Niigata, but I told him not to bother, we'll probably watch it at his house or go to IWA and see it there.
