TOKYO, December 24. /TASS/. The Japanese government resigned en masse on Wednesday in a formal procedure as the country prepares to approve Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for his next term.
Abe, 60, whose Liberal Democratic Party won a landslide victory in a December 14 snap election, is expected to appoint a new cabinet on Wednesday afternoon which media reports said would be largely unchanged.
Together with its partner in the coalition, New Komeito, the prime minister’s party won more than two thirds out of 475 seats in the lower house of parliament, which chooses the prime minister and has virtual control of the budgeting process.
Abe, who was re-elected to the position in December 2012 after an overwhelming election victory, is expected to hold on power for up to four more years to pursue his policies aimed at reviving Japan's economy.
