Japanese long serving Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has announced this Friday morning that he will have to resign from his position as premier for health reasons. “My health is not very good. I cannot let this condition influence my political decisions. Now that I am not able to complete the mandate confidently given to me by the people, I have decided, that I should not be keeping the post of Prime Minister. I have decided to resigned from the post of Prime Minister” Even though his health issues were public knowledge and there were already rumors of his constant visits to the hospital, Japanese did not still think that he could resign because he seemed unshakable. So the breaking of his resignation news came like a thunder strike in the Japanese political landscape.

The 64 years old has been suffering with this intestinal issues for a long time and this was the main reason why he left his sit in his first mandate as Prime Minister in 2007. When he came back to power late 2011 he looked very strong. Mr Shinzo is a record holder in his position of Premier in Japan with an uninterrupted 2798 days. A post which he took from his grand uncle who was also another long lasting Premier. Politics is a family thing in the Abe family.

Shinzo Abe would have liked to stay if he could to repair his image bruised by his management of the coronavirus pandemic that was very much criticized. Also, he would have like to stay for the 2021 Olympic games which he work so hard for it to be hosted in Japan. Abe will likely be succeeded by Taro Aso, actual Finance Minister who has been Prime Minister of the country before, even though the will be a lot of political tussle in his very stable right wing conservative  Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) with it comfortable majority in the parliament.
