Politics in Japan to face complex uncertainty

A Japanese scholar also opines that it's "'almost certain that the next general election ('in Japan') will not produce a parliamentary majority for a single party" and it "will enter a period of profound uncertainty". PM Noda has reshuffled the cabinet 3 time within a year of his office. Noda himself is, 'of course, Japan''s sixth prime minister in six years. Whether to open up more sectors of its economy to foreign capital is a difficult decision for'any government in Japan to make as domestic resistance, particularly from the agricultural interest, is fairly strong.
