 What is the reason for Shinzo Abes sudden resignation?

Abe: as my illness needs treatment and my physical condition is in pain, I am not allowed to make any mistakes in making important political decisions. In view of my inability to perform my duties and no longer be able to respond confidently to the demands of the people, I have decided not to continue to be a prime minister. I will resign as prime minister.

On August 17, Shinzo Abe went to Qingying university hospital for additional examination of regular physical examination, and left about 7 hours later.

Just a week later, on August 24, the day Abe set a record for the number of consecutive Japanese prime ministers, Abe went to the hospital again for an examination.

Abe said that according to the doctors suggestion, the new intravenous therapy will be carried out on August 31, but it can not guarantee the effect, so he decided to withdraw for treatment.

Japanese people: Im surprised! He looked tired, but I didnt expect him to quit. I hope he can work harder and be Prime Minister for a while longer.

In September 2006, Abe became Prime Minister for the first time, becoming the first and youngest Japanese Prime Minister born after World War II. But a year later, in September 2007, Abe suddenly resigned as Prime Minister for health reasons.

In 2012, Shinzo Abe received an exclusive interview with digestive organ square, a journal of the Japanese Society of digestive diseases.

Claim that they have found effective ways to control their illness. To leave the impression of actively overcome the disease.

At that time, Japan was facing the economic downturn after the earthquake and the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident, and the people were eager for a leader who could change their luck and bring miracle out of the predicament.

In September 2012, Abe made a comeback and became the president of the opposition Liberal Democratic Party at that time. He led the LDP to defeat the ruling Democratic Party and become prime minister in the December election of that year.

Japanese people: novel coronavirus pneumonia is struggling to cope with the outbreak, but he seems to be exhausted recently. Im worried, unfortunately!

According to Fuji TV, Abe worked continuously for more than 140 days after the outbreak of the epidemic in Japan, and even suffered from vomiting blood.

On August 4, Japans flash weekly also quoted government insiders as saying that Abe had vomited blood in the office of the prime ministers residence on July 6.

According to the presidential medical reports collected by the Kennedy Library of the United States, when the Cuban missile crisis occurred in 1962, then US President Kennedy was deeply troubled by spastic colitis, but Kennedy concealed his illness.

In April 1919, Gleason, the private doctor of Wilson at that time, wrote, the president suddenly caught a bad cold, and the whole human civilization is at a critical moment.

Wilsons illness was deliberately concealed at the time of the Paris Peace Conference and at the time of the Spanish influenza pandemic.

In October 1919, Wilson also suffered from a stroke, resulting in left hemiplegia and left eye blindness.

This sudden resignation of Prime Minister Abe will not only affect Japans domestic politics, but also may affect the smooth holding of next years Tokyo Olympic Games.

But the outbreak of novel coronavirus pneumonia delayed the Tokyo Olympics until July 23, 2021.

On August 28, Kyodo News Agency reported that the Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee will make every effort to promote the holding of the Tokyo Olympic Games and will continue to cooperate with the International Olympic Committee.

On resigning, Abe said he felt extremely painful.

The New York Times commented that in a country where prime ministers change frequently, Abe, 65, has been prime minister for nearly eight years, which is an achievement in itself.

However, there are different opinions on Abes political legacy in Japan.

In December 2012, Abe, the second Japanese Prime Minister, chanted the slogan of economic priority and implemented a series of economic stimulus policies, known as abenomics.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe: what is abenomics? Is to enhance the competitiveness of the companys enterprises, productivity, improve income.

The three arrows, the new three arrows and social 5.0 and other reform measures have led to a decline in Japans unemployment rate and an increase in residents income. Although generally speaking, the range is small and some measures are controversial, the changes in economic data have won him the support of many voters.

However, in the past two or three years, unilateralism and protectionism have risen, globalization has suffered a cold current, and Japans export dependent economy has been hit.

This year, the novel coronavirus pneumonia epidemic continues to spread, making the GDP in Japan in the two quarter down 7.8%, down 27.8% at an annual rate, the worst performance since 1955. This is the third consecutive quarter of negative economic growth in Japan. This result has reduced Japans real GDP to a 10-year low, which is equivalent to the achievements made by Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan, since the implementation of abenomics at the end of 2012.

This is a big blow to Abe.

Besides abenomics, diplomatic breakthroughs are also an important driving force for Abe. Taking advantage of his long-term ruling advantage, Abe tried to display overlooking globe diplomacy.

In September 2015, Abe trotted on a diplomatic occasion, reflecting Abes eagerness to improve Japan Russia relations.

In June this year, former U.S. national security assistant Bolton wrote in his memoir that among world leaders, Abe is the best private friend with trump.

In mid-2019, a number of merchant ships were damaged in the Persian Gulf, and the situation in the Middle East was very tense. In June that year, Abe went to Tehran to meet with Iranian President Rohani, hoping to become the intermediary between the United States and Iran. This was also the first time that Japanese Prime Minister visited Iran since the Islamic revolution in 1979.

Yukichi Nakano, Professor of international politics at Sophia University in Tokyo: Japans relations with other Asian countries will be affected by Abes resignation, especially in terms of personal relations. But the most structural factor is also increasingly important: whether Mr. trump will be re elected president of the United States.

According to the documents released by Japans foreign ministry, Abe visited about 80 countries and regions from January 2013 to January 2020, surpassing Japans previous prime ministers.

Japanese analysts believe that from the perspective of party politics, the LDP has not been able to challenge Abe. From the domestic political point of view, the opposition parties are generally weak and unable to form an effective challenge to the LDP. In addition, with the help of the foreign aid Komeito party, Japans political arena has in fact formed the situation of Abes independence, which also provides the basis for Abes constitutional dream.

In 2015, taking advantage of the ruling coalitions seat in the parliament, the LDP promoted the passage of a series of controversial new security bills to lift the right of collective self-defense and allow Japans self-defense forces to send troops overseas in the name of collective self-defense.

Japanese political commentator Naoto tienki: sending the self defense forces to all parts of the world is the main purpose of amending the security law. In this way, the so far exclusive defense policy, that is, the SDF only defends when Japan is attacked, will have a fundamental change.

The move triggered strong repercussions in Japanese society, protesting that the new security bill was called war bill, and Abes cabinet support rate once plummeted.

During his second term in office, Abe also had several corruption scandals.

Yoshini nagichi, President of moriyou Academy: at that time, there were only two of us. She said, please accept this from Prime Minister Abe. then she gave me an envelope containing a donation of 1 million yen.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe: I, my wife, and my office are not involved in this land transaction.

A series of negative events, such as the senyou school scandal, the Jiaji school scandal, and the cherry blossom party disturbance, caused the support rate of Abes regime to fall seriously for a time.

Many Japanese people also believe that Abes resignation marks the end of a rare era of policy stability, which Japan needs most at present.

According to an opinion poll conducted by Japans Shimei news agency in early August, Shi bomao, former Secretary of the Liberal Democratic Party, ranked first in the support rate for the next prime minister.

Shi is 63 years old. His father was a former governor of niaotou County, and his mother is a teacher. Compared with Abe, Aso, Koizumi and other political aristocratic families in the LDP, Shi came from an ordinary background.

Like Abe, Shi Shimao, a former Minister of foreign affairs and defense, is also a constitutional revisionist, arguing that Japan should establish a maritime self defense force Marine Corps, which can cooperate with the US Marine Corps.

In diplomacy, Ishibashi is a mixture of hard and soft, and is not pro american. He has doubts about taking the Japan US alliance as the basic axis of Japans diplomacy.

In 2008 and 2012, Shi pengmao twice participated in the election of the president of the Liberal Democratic Party, both of which ended in failure.

On August 28, he talked about the presidential election on TV, saying: there is no option of not running.

Taro Aso, 79, Deputy Prime Minister and finance minister, is also a strong contender for the LDPs leader.

Analysts believe that if Abe leaves office soon, Mr Aso, who has rich political experience, is likely to be elected as interim leader before the new partys first choice.

Mr. Ishida, chairman of the Liberal Democratic Party. According to Japans economic news, he is Abes favorite successor. In January this year, Abe publicly said that Amanda had made it clear that he would participate in the election of the next president of the LDP and looked forward to his action.
