A voter for Liberal Democratic Party(LDP) wearing the national flag of Japan. Besides the disappointing economic situation for the past 20 yeras, the nation has been frustrated by the government's recent weak foreign policy. As a result the patriotism is now growing little by little in this least patriotic country especially in the younger generation.

LDP ruled as a one-party government for a long time and it had been said that one-party regime led political corruption in Japan. In August 2009, the major oppositon Democratic Party of Japan came to the power. It was the first time ever in the postwar era for a change of administration to take place by a majority of votes; however, The party that should have been the solution for the country's long time crisis failed big time to meet the public expectations. And now LDP returned to the power again after three years hiatus and the party leader Abe will come back as Prime Minister for his second time. He would be trying to fulfill his campaign slogan "Regain Japan" and the nation keeps an eye on how he can develop political acumen both nationally and economically.
