Parliament Dissolved, Early Election

The Prime Minister has dissolved parliament and called for an early election next month. The polls are pointing towards a newly elected parliament with no clear winner.

No, I am not writing about Sweden, but about Japan. The PM is Yoshihiko Noda, and it does not look like either his party DPJ or the main opposition party LDP will gain a majority in parliament.

In an international context, the politics of Japan is much more important than that of Sweden. As a Shiba Inu, I am also extra interested in Japan. I hope the newly elected parliament will be able to give Japan a more stable political environment. This would be especially needed with the current bad economy. Nevertheless, I believe the Japanese will work everything out. They always have, before.
