Synopsis >

Japan's very own comeback kid - prime minister Shinzo Abe. The 58-year-old grandson of a former prime minister swept back to power on Wednesday - five years after abruptly resigning as premier in the wake of a scandal-hit one-year term. He told reporters earlier that he wanted to learn from his previous experiences and aim for a stable government. Abe was elected by both houses of parliament after his right wing Liberal Democratic Party surged back to power in a December 16 election.
