LDP Wins Japan’s General Election by a Landslide

LDP Wins Japan's General Election by a Landslide(Tokyo) – Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) has won by a landslide in House of Representatives election by securing 294 seats in the election. The LDP’s key ally, the New Komeito Party, got 31 seats, helping the two-party coalition gain 325 seats in the lower house.
The President of the LDP, ex-Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is expected to reclaim the premiership soon. Expressing his joy on winning the elections, Abe said his party’s victory is due to failure of the Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ), which is ruling the country over the past three years. “People thought they should put an end to the government of the DPJ. Therefore, people have to say no to the DPJ government,” Abe said in a press conference. He added Japanese people are watching closely to see if the LDP can really respond to their expectations. “So we should try to live up to the expectations”.
