I collected the data on the party leadership and intra-party election results of major political parties in some of the democratic countries in Asia and Central and Eastern Europe, funded mainly by Waseda University (Project No. 2012A-501) and partly by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (Project No. 26301013, Principal Investigator: Professor Takeshi Ito, Senshu University). Here I publish the data collected through this project (as for the countries without link, the data is in preparation). Each country's data was collected by the experts on/in the region with lots of efforts. I hereby would like to express my gratitude to all those who helped this project for their time and efforts and to Waseda University and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science for their generosity to financially support the data collection.
