Japan's former PM elected to lead Opposition

Earlier today, Japan's ex-PM Shinzo Abe was elected the top leader of the opposition LDP. 'According to a report in Japan''s Ashahi Shimbun, South Korea is pretty unhappy with Abe's election. Japan's neighbours are closely watching' trends and development 'in its 'domestic politics. The resurgence of rightwing nationalism in Japan's politics, which, if unchecked, 'could lead to revival of militarism, is of concern to them. In recent months,'the common concern has caused China, Russia and South Korea 'to harden their responses 'to territorial rows with Japan.
