Japan: Abe should revalidate majority in the anticipated legislative

One hundred and five million voters were called to the polls, but it is feared a weak participation.

The Conservative Party of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe should, according to polls, get a comfortable victory.

The elections were called last month for Abe, who returned to power two years ago to a second term as head of Government, having as a priority the Japanese economy to revive.

The strategy taken in 2012 began to bear fruit, but was losing effect and, in the third quarter of this year, Japan entered into recession.

However, distrust of the population in the face of opposition should allow the Conservative leader to maintain, with the centrist allies, the "super majority" in Parliament.
