The landslide victory in Sunday's election delivered 76 of the 121 contested Diet seats to the ruling LDP and its coalition partner, New Komeito, which now control both chambers. The result would give a boost to Abe and his efforts to get the nation's economy out of a 20-year-long slump. (Photo by Kaku Kurita/AFLO)
