Japan Preparing For Election

Sunday election expected to result in a change of government

|

Japan is set for a general election on Sunday widely expected to usher in a new government.

The Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) appears poised to oust the Democratic Party (DPJ) after only three years in office, with former PM Shinzo Abe likely to return to the top job.

Sales tax, nuclear energy and ties with China have all emerged as issues.

But many voters say they are undecided, amid widespread disillusionment in Japan over politics.
