Prime Minister Of Japan Resigns On Health Grounds

65-year-old Japan’s prime minister Shinzo Abe today announced his resignation on health grounds.

The prime minister’s resignation bring an end to his eight-year stint in power.

He announced he had suffered a relapse of a chronic bowel condition. He stated that he had ‘lost a lot of my energy and strength’ and would need regular medical treatment that would prevent him from tackling the coronavirus crisis.

He told a press conference:

I have been struggling with my illness and I have to get treatment. Poor health should not lead to wrong political decisions.

The announcement brings an end to the longest premiership in Japanese history, in which Abe sought close ties with Donald Trump while trying to revive the economy with his ‘Abenomics’ policies and shake off the legacy of World War II.
