TOKYO (IDN) – On 28 August 2020, Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced that he would be stepping down after a record term in office of almost eight years. Abe had already been Prime Minister between 2006 and 2007. In his first term of office, he had been barely able to move anything forward and was described in the media as ‘a complete failure’.
His second term of office was admittedly long and delivered political stability but even in the many years since 2012, the Prime Minister has barely achieved any of the goals he had set out to. Most recently, the government had been severely criticised for its inadequate coronavirus crisis management. Abe had studiously ignored the second coronavirus wave in July/August and steered clear of publicity. The approval ratings for the government in polls fell at times to 32 per cent.
