Political development in Japan after election

Generally, it is expected that LDP would win the Lower House election in Japan to be held tomorrow. 'Also, Shinzo Abe is expected to bcome Japan''s PM again. Can Japan solve its many deeply-rooted, structural and accumulated problems, both internal and external, after the poll'? Certainly, political development in Japan will be closely watched even after tomorrow as the right shift, 'if persists, could impact on others. Will the 'righter-than-thou' one-upmanship among its politicians end ? Will there be a political space for Japan's liberals and progressives to articulate less hawkish ideas for 'the betterment of Japanese society, and to rebuild relations with neighbours, like China and South Korea'?
