Japan’s ruling LDP to pick Abe’s successor Sept 14

Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party will vote on September 14 to select a new leader to succeed Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Jiji news agency reported on Monday.

Abe, Japan’s longest-serving premier, said on Friday he was resigning due to worsening of a chronic illness, paving the way for an LDP leadership election.

The LDP president is virtually guaranteed of being prime minister because of the party’s majority in the lower house of parliament.
