Japanese parliamentary elections are scheduled for August 30th of this year. This is after current Japanese Prime Minister Taro Aso decided to call an election due to political pressure. However Aso and the long-ruling Liberal Democratic Party which is increasingly unpopular to say the least due to the very poor and stagnant shape of the Japanese economy in the face of the global fincancal crisis along with many other woes. Is facing the strong prospect of crushing defeat on August 30th to the Democratic Party of Japan led by Yukio Hatoyama. The DPJ which is a varied collection of centre-left and anti-LDP interests, on the opposite end of matters is looking like it will score a large victory over the LDP. However is this happens, even though this election is historic in the sense that this will only be the second time in over a half a century that the LDP is pushed out of power along with perhaps the beginnings of some comapative aspect to the multi-party system in Japan. Although the DPJ shouldn't grow too comfortable with being in power due to the fact that after their first ouster in the 1990's to the Socialists the LDP was back in power not long after. Overall though in my opinion circumstances in Japan favor the DPJ to have a longer hold on power then that given the feelings of the Japanese public on certain issues as well as the predicted scope of their possible electoral victory.
So does anyone else have any opinions to share on the upcoming parliamentary election in Japan?
