USSC CEO Dr Michael Green discusses the recent Japanese election outcome with Time magazine. "The ruling LDP coalition was already going into the election in a strong position. Prime Minister [Fumio] Kishida learned from the mistakes of his immediate predecessor regarding the politics of COVID and regained public confidence for the government. The opposition parties, meanwhile, are divided and disorganized.”

Dr Green is the author of Line of Advantage: Japan’s Grand Strategy in the Era of Abe Shinzo.
