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? ;-)
