Early parliamentary elections in Japan: the victory of the liberal-democratic party Shinzo Abe

In Japan, parliamentary elections were held, following which the Liberal Democratic Party, Shinzo Abe, won 290 seats, and the center-right political party Komeito - 35 seats. The number of women parliamentarians increased from 38 to 45, which is still below the 30% promised by the head of the Japanese government.

In November, the parliament of the previous convocation was dissolved, in which the liberal-democratic party of Japan was also the dominant bloc, but the alignment of forces was slightly different: 294 mandates belonged to Shinzo Abe, Komeito-31.

The initiative of early elections was made by Shinzo Abe himself. Their goal is to activate the economic reforms that it is carrying out. Earlier, the head of the Japanese government said that if the ruling bloc does not receive more than half of the seats in the lower house of parliament, he will resign. At the moment it becomes clear that Shinzo Abe can now remain in his post until 2018 year.

However, the victory of the LDP in the elections could not stop the collapse of the Japanese stock market. The Topix index dropped to 0,8%, Nikkei 225 - to 0,9%.
