Japan PM Weighing Snap Election in October

Wochit Headline News - Sunday, 17 September 2017  (1 week ago)
According to government sources, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe may call for a snap election in October. The speculation is said to be due to Abe's improved approval ratings and disarray in opposition parties. Jitters over North Korea’s recent missile and nuclear tests and chaos in Japan's opposition Democratic Party have seen Abe’s approval figures improve to 50 percent in some polls.
