Japan PM Weighing Snap Election in October

Wochit Headline News - Sunday, 17 September 2017  (5 days ago)
According to government sources, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe may call for a snap election in October. The speculation is said to be due to Abe's improved approval ratings and disarray in opposition parties. Jitters over North Koreaโ€™s recent missile and nuclear tests and chaos in Japan's opposition Democratic Party have seen Abeโ€™s approval figures improve to 50 percent in some polls.
