Headlines here earlier: Japan's Prime minister Abe says he is not considering calling a snap election
Bloomberg have a little more up now:
- Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe denied he was thinking of calling a snap general election, a day after a ruling party official told reporters it was an option.
- While no lower house election need be held for more than three years, a renewed mandate would potentially be a way for Abe to restore control over the political agenda and bolster his chances of winning a ruling party leadership election in September.
We should have a competition
What date will it be? ;-)
