In recent days and weeks, Abe and his administrations support rate have plummeted to the lowest since he assumed office in December 2012, because the public feel they have not received adequate information on or explanations for the prime minister steamrolling controversial security legislation through the lower house, which, if enacted, will broaden the scope of Japans Self-Defense Forces to take part in deployments overseas and closer to home and allow the forces to exercise the right to collective self-defense.Abes ardent push to normalize Japans military has sparked hundreds of protests across the country, with almost daily protests around the National Diet building in central Tokyo, which have seen more than 100,000 gather on some occasions to demonstrate the security legislation and the hollowing out of the nations decades-held pacifist Constitution and Article 9 therein which denounces war, the use of force to settle disputes and the maintaining of an army, navy or air force.But Abes uncontested victory Tuesday, has played into the hands of the ruling camp, bolstered by the unwavering support of the LDPs factions associated with the partys heavyweights including LDP Secretary-General Sadakazu Tanigaki and Shigeru Ishiba who is minister for regional revitalization, as the ruling bloc were keen to have Abe win an easy victory and go straight on to focus on the latter stages of the deliberations in the upper house over his war bills.Abes administration is eyeing having the unpopular security bills passed through Japans upper house of parliament, where the LDP also hold a majority, by September 18, thereafter party sources said the prime ministers agenda involves attending the United Nations General Assembly session at the end of September, followed by overseeing his own Cabinet and executive reshuffle in early October.Abes next term as the ruling party president through September 2018, will bring his total reign to six years, as he was first elected to the post in September 2012 and cant be re-elected for a third term.Abe is the first LDP president to be re-elected without a contest since former Prime Minister Ryutaro Hashimoto won re- election in 1997.8.03KRelated StoriesHuge protest in Tokyo rails against PM Abes security billsChina demands Japan face history after Abes wife visits Yasukuni ShrineAbe visit possible, media reportS.
