fellows 1

On July 10, 2016, Japan held an Upper House election for half of the chamber’s 242 seats. At this event following those elections, experts from Sasakawa USA offered their analysis on the implications of the election for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s government and for U.S.-Japan relations.

Japan’s ruling coalition secured victory in key parliamentary elections, but will the makeup of the ruling parties allow Abe to assemble the full two-thirds majority necessary for constitutional revision? Sasakawa USA fellows analyzed this and other questions, including to what extent Abe will focus on economic reforms, the near-term finalization of a stimulus package, the lack of LDP representation in Okinawa, and other implications for the Abe administration.
