Uncertainly over North Korea and its growing nuclear arsenal heightens underlying conservatism
Voting is underway in Japan’s general election and polls indicate prime minister Shinzo Abe’s ruling coalition will win handily, possibly even retaining its two-thirds majority in the more powerful lower house of parliament.
Japanese voters may not love Abe, but they appear to want to stick with what they know, rather than hand the reins to an opposition with little or no track record. Uncertainly over North Korea and its growing missile and nuclear arsenal may be heightening that underlying conservatism.
