Wako (Japan): Shinzo Abe is likely to be the next prime minister of Japan after his Liberal Democratic Party`s victory in Japan`s parliamentary election on Sunday.

Abe had resigned as prime minister for health reasons in 2007 after just a year in office.

He is likely to get a second chance to try to lead Japan out of its economic slump.

In Abe`s political resurrection, the Japanese are confiding their hopes for a national comeback, backing Liberal Democrat pledges to restore the good times of the 1980s and 90s, before the financial bubble went bust and the economy slid into a 20-year funk.

Abe epitomizes the LDP brand of conservatism and nationalism that kept the party in power for most of the post-World War II era, until it was ousted by the Democratic Party of Japan in 2009.
