Japanese Prime minister Shinzo Abe resigns

Date: 30 August 2020 Tags: Appointments & Resignations
  • Shinzo Abe, the longest-serving Japanese prime minister in history, has resigned, citing health reasons.
  • Abe suffers from colitis, a non-curable inflammatory bowel disease, which was also a factor in his sudden resignation as prime minister in 2007, ending his first term after just over a year in office.
  • Following his previous resignation in 2007, Abe was re-elected in 2012. Since then he has been the dominant force in Japanese politics, winning a landslide third term in 2017 and a fourth in 2019, despite multiple scandals and plummeting popularity.
