Japan: Protesters rally against PM Abe's decision to dissolve parliament and call snap election

Scores of protesters gathered outside Japan's national parliament in Tokyo, Thursday, to demonstrate against Prime Minister Shinzo Abe following the head of government's decision to dissolve parliament and call a snap election. The poll, which comes 12 months early, is reportedly due to take place on October 22. Protesters fear Abe is attempting to seize full control of the country's... Еще legislature, in what they see as a 'coup' attempt amid opposition weakness and the prime minister's improved polling figures. Abe is said to be seeking a new mandate to pursue a tougher stance against North Korea after it recently fired two missiles over Japan, and to develop policies to deal with the country's ageing population.
