The General Election in 2012
As you know, the Liberal Democratic Party(LDP) won a landslide victory in the 46th general election in Japan on Sunday. Mr. Abe, the leader of LDP insisted that he and his party got a brilliant result and could stop the administration of the Democratic Party(DP) from ruining Japan.
But I think LDP had simply ridden a wave of public disgust in the failure of his opponents. People in Japan didn't perfectly accept LDP's policy. Voters couldn't look for the best political party after DP was split into two or three parties.
For three years and three months DP has kept straying, even though they had a majority in seats. They realized that Japan is more difficult on the financial condition unless we might raise consumption tax. But they hadn't showed us this resolution before on their “Manifest". That's the biggest problem. But you know, LDP had already approved consumption tax earlier. Now, after this election, we realized that consumption tax didn't affect the current of public opinion. In the House of Representatives, the Liberal Democratic Party held a commanding lead with 294 of the 480 seats. Isn't it almost a mirror image of the election result in 2009, when the Democrats won 308 seats? And the election result in 2009 was a mirror image of the former election in 2005.
Most of young voters start thinking that the politics in Japan would never change even though the political party in office took dramatically turn administering our country. I guess that's why we had a very light poll this time.
