■Abe faces tough choices after Japanese election win


Shinzo Abe has led his Liberal Democratic Party to a landslide victory in the Japanese election.

The conservative leader must hit the ground running as the country faces an economic downturn and strained ties with China.

The governing Democratic Party suffered major losses at the ballot box with leader Yoshihiko Noda stepping down.

Abe is under pressure to deliver a feel good factor as Japan goes through its fourth recession since 2000.

Economic policy deadlock has hampered attempts to improve the country's outlook.

Markets reacted well to the election result with stocks continuing to rise.

Abe, along with coalition partners the New Komeito Party will have a two-thirds majority in the 480- seat chamber.

In the Chinese capital Beijing a shift to right in Japan has raised concerns that the territorial dispute over the uninhabited isles in the East China Sea will escalate:

"Of course it is not good if the Japanese government hardens its policy against China. This will not only create a threat to China, but for the entire Asian region, and therefore the world. We don't want that," said one Beijing resident.

After years of Chinese ascendancy and North Korean provocation Japan's desire to stand up for Japanese sovereignty is once again burning bright.




■Japan's Noda steps down after election defeat


Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda resigns as head of the Democratic Party of Japan on Sunday.

SOUNDBITE: Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda (Japanese) "The biggest responsibility for this loss lies with me as head of the party, and I will take full responsibility for this and resign as head of the Democratic Party of Japan."

Earlier Sunday, the opposition party - the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan - won in the general elections by a landslide .

Three years ago, the conservative Liberal Democratic Party suffered a crushing defeat - but the victory will give former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe a second chance to run the country
