Election of LDP chief predicted by M'sian don

UKM's Professor Lee Poh Ping (left), whom I interviewed via email for malaysiakini a few days before the election of Yasuo Fukuda (above) as the new chief of Japan's ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), has made an accurate prediction based on clear-minded analysis. He is a Senior Fellow of UKM's Institute of Malaysian and International Studies (IKMAS) and also President of the Malaysian Association of Japanese Studies (MAJAS).

In the past four years, I have also interviewed Professor Lee Poh Ping on eight other themes of international relations, namely M’sia should meet the challenges of a different America, US future strategy in Asia-Pacific: a M’sian forecast (Part 1), US future strategy in Asia-Pacific – a M’sian forecast (Part 2), Is Iraq another Vietnam for US ?, US, Japan encircling China?, The East Asian community, US Global Position - an updated survey and 'Arc of Democracy' ? Needless to say, some of the observations and assumptions in the questions and/or answers may have been outdated by the changed or fast changing situations in the world since those interviews were first published.
