Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe resigns

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has resigned from the post of Prime Minister. Japanese media write about it.


Abe's resignation was reportedly due to deteriorating health. According to reports, the still incumbent Prime Minister of Japan will announce his resignation at a special press conference, which will be held on Friday at 17:00 local time (11:00 Moscow time).

According to the Kyodo news agency, Abe has already announced his resignation to the leadership of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) in the country, and also informed the leadership of the New Komeito Party, an ally of the LDP in the ruling coalition, about his decision. It is clarified that after the announcement, Abe will not appoint an interim prime minister, but will remain in office until a new head of government is elected. The next elections are to be held in September this year.

In Japan, Abe's decision was called "a big surprise."

Note that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe personally advocated strengthening ties with Russia, while trying to resolve the issue of ownership of the Northern Territories (southern Kuril Islands). It is obvious that under the new prime minister, whose post is being claimed by the general secretary of the cabinet of ministers Yoshihide Suga, the minister of defense Taro Kono, the head of the political council of the ruling LDP Fumio Kishida and the former secretary general of the cabinet of ministers Shigeru Ishiba, an opponent and critic of the course of the current government, relations between Tokyo and Moscow may change. ...

      It is sympathetic to the fact that people do not hold on to power, and when they fail or fail to fulfill their promises, they take and leave ... but we only have feet forward, despite the fact that there are failures all around ..

        And before the announcement of his resignation, it turns out that he did not hold on to power, he fulfilled all promises without failures, and his health deteriorated literally the day before, so should you understand?

                Keep proofs:
                Japanese Prime Minister leaves. And for some reason everyone forgot that Shinzo Abe swore to return the Kuriles at his father's grave. And if he doesn't, he'll do hara-kiri. The Japanese are a strange nation, of course. He set a deadline for himself - until November 2020. It was in 2008, that is, 12 years ago. It was not possible to return the Kuril Islands. By that time, he had been prime minister for two years.

            You and others like you are constantly whining about the "holy" constitution of 1993, but for some reason the Constitution of 2008 is wrong. The President is not yours? I sympathize .. And I supported him and will continue to vote. I am proud of my country and my Fatherland.
            We have a huge country - the largest territory to develop and develop. In 4 years, not everything can be done or implemented in projects in the long term. Of course 6 years looks more acceptable and logical.
            If you just don’t like it and want to live not under "this regime and this country" then go with Svarog to the United States. There you will be democratically kicked for disagreeing with a rubber truncheon and locked up in a monkey along with the blacks. Although you can get the deadline - sorry with African Americans ..

        Haha funny by God !! Well, who told you that he resigns at his own request? A speech about "deteriorating health" is generally an excuse on duty. Rather, he did something or failed that he was very tightly grabbed by the Faberge and pointed to the door. Like "My dear friend, either you leave yourself, or you leave again, but already without" bells "

    If you didn't manage to squeeze out the Kuril Islands - go away. Everyone who opens a company to the Russian islands will have a "deterioration in health".
    But the question arises who will replace him. The issue of returning the territories cannot be solved by washing and rolling, it became clear to them. It turns out that the next prime minister will pursue an aggressive policy. Moreover, preparations are already underway for this through changes in the legislation of Japan, and pumping up the muscles of the military machine.

          If I planned ... I would probably sit in the government. And so I just guess. There are many tensions, you are right. Where it will explode globally is unknown. Only one thing is known - it will explode either against us or against China.
          The enemy will definitely be some kind of coalition with the leadership from the United States. Or the stimulation of the United States, it doesn't matter at all, striped ears stick out everywhere.
          How we will rake this conflict is also essentially not clear, tk. "generals are preparing for past wars." And taking into account the ambitions and the balls dropping behind the striped rollers ... you can fantasize as much as you like.

      A samurai would have fought against the Fshatsky invaders and not become a slave.

    Yes, they have not changed since 1945 and will not change in the foreseeable future.
    "Hostile neutrality" is how I would characterize this relationship.

    In view of the fact that his country in the occupation of zaluzhniki had to leave by way of hara-kiri, it should be a shame.

    I still do not understand! - Mr. Abe swore to return the islands at the ancestor's grave! He did not fulfill his oath! Where is seppuku ?? !! The people demand observance of customs, wash away the shame! M-mm-mde .. not a samurai cake already. Not cake !!

      Hidden in the fog of the Kuril Islands,
      A sad samurai is sitting.
      The ulcer gnaws at him.

    Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe resigns as Prime Minister

    I was going to hike to do hara-kiri myself. He didn’t keep his oath on the graves of his ancestors, he didn’t return the Kuriles. request laughing

    I read the comments and am amazed. Abe resigned, not holding on to power, which is generally a typical picture for Japan, and they laugh at him, they say, a weakling. In Russia, the tsar has been in power for 20 years, reshapes the Constitution for himself, removes all political competitors from the horizon, and the people consider this to be normal. This is truly servile thinking.

    And, look, just a week ago, I once met with Navalny on the transfer of Japan, a number of Russian islands, and what a violent allergic reaction to Alexei. All the quotes on the Tokyo Stock Exchange collapsed.
    Next meeting, with Lyosha, with Merkel?

    health deterioration
    Humanly sympathetic. Constant stress because of the Kuriles, which he promised to return, criticism from Japanese nationalists (and not only). Where to "poor samurai" to go, as soon as he retires.
    relations between Tokyo and Moscow may change.
    They (the relationship) were not so hot before, so they definitely won't get better.

    If the current minister of defense is elected, it will be ridiculous .. Imagine in a few months:
    RIA Novosti reports that yesterday, in a closed atmosphere, Russian President Putin met with TaraKan, the Prime Minister of Japan ...

    Which instead of the prescribed two terms

    Yes, at least 10, if only the liberals still threw all into the ocean.

    No no, 10 no need. He will have to take this second life somewhere. If he declared himself a king with inheritance, and said that all around his slaves, it would be better, maybe there would be more of his own shore.
    The crooks at the throne have ceased to fear him at all. Old became. It's time for him to have a young wife and a house somewhere in Rostov.

    In Japan, Abe's decision was called "a big surprise."

    Abe left like.
    "It is extremely painful to realize that I am leaving without resolving the issues, including not concluding a peace treaty with Russia," Shinzo Abe admitted at a press conference.
