Hi everyone, Yesterday, Mr Abe announced his resignation as leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan. I guess a few of us were quite shocked by the timing of his decision but given all the scandals, not so shocked by the decision itself. Talking about the news has given me an opportunity to learn more about Japanese politics which is great because I’ve always been interested in the way countries are governed. Who will take over as Prime Minister? What does the future hold? I’d be interested in hearing your opinions.
