Shinzo Abe’s snap election gamble pays off
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and its coalition partners secured a landslide victory in Japan’s snap elections. Abe triumphed in his bid to cement his parliamentary powers as his ruling bloc retained its supermajority in the lower house of the parliament. Abe’s gamble to hold a snap election had seemed risky as few early polls had predicted that the ruling LDP coalition government may lose significant number of seats. Moreover, just before the announcement of a snap election, popular Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike floated her new political party, Party of Hope, raising the odds of tighter-than-expected electoral contest. However, her party failed to record strong performance as the ruling LDP successfully exploited the infighting in the opposition camp.
