Japan PM Shinzo Abe eyes a third reelected term for revising the constitution

Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is all set to set his eyes on a third term for his government next week to fulfill his long-cherished ambition of amending the country’s war-renouncing constitution, AP reported.

He already has reportedly locked around 70 percent of parliamentarian support from the Liberal Democratic Party. If relected, it will give him more than enough time to spark a change.

His sole challenger,  Shigeru Ishiba, a former defense minister, stood on the opposite side during the debate on Friday, following elections day on September 20.
