Japan’s Upcoming Election

Japan heads to the voting booths on September 11th for a snap election to revote their government. In what many people are calling the most important election in post-war Japan, it marks perhaps one of the first opportunities that the single-party dominance of the LDP has come under attack. I’ve been watching the news on this election since it first was announced on the failure of the privatization of Japan Post and the linked Wikipedia article gives a good background on the topic.
