Abe wins big in election, re-elected as PM


Liberal Democratic Party leader Shinzo Abe was re-elected as prime minister on Nov. 1 following his  ruling bloc's overwhelming victory in the Lower House election on Oct. 22.
The LDP won 284 of the 465 seats in the general election, with Komeito, its smaller partner in the ruling coalition, which allowed it to maintain its two-thirds majority in the Lower House.
The 63-year-old Abe has been Japan's leader for nearly five years.
