Where is Abe leading Japan? (East Asia Forum)

Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party will hold its party presidential election on Thursday, 20 September, in a contest that is all but certain to deliver a third three-year term to incumbent Shinzo Abe. While LDP leaders were previously limited to two terms, Abe’s supporters changed the LDP’s internal rules two years ago to permit an extra term. A win will enable Abe to become Japan’s longest serving prime minister.
