Japan: Exit Polls Show Liberal Democratic Party Won Election

Though official results are not expected until Dec. 17, exit polls show that Japan's Liberal Democratic Party won between 275 and 300 seats of the lower parliamentary house's 480 seats, taking back power after three years in opposition, AP reported Dec. 16, citing public broadcaster NHK. The LDP will likely form a coalition government with longtime partner Komeito and control roughly 320 seats in total. The Japanese political system has seen a rise in popular nationalists bent on reform — a trend that could ultimately lead to postwar Japan's metamorphosis into a more assertive regional power.
