Japan votes in key elections after Abe’s assassination

TOKYO (AP) — Los japoneses fueron a las urns el domingo, unos comicios marcados por el asesinato del ex-prime minister Shinzo Abe, baleado cuando ofrecía un discourse de campaña. El partido de Abe, que gobierna el país, parécia encaminarse a una grand victoria.

While the people were voting, the police in the west of Japan took the alleged killer to the local prosecutor to continue the investigation. One day before, a high-ranking official of the regional police admitted possible security lapses that allowed the aggressor to approach and fire a bullet at the even influential Japanese exmandate.

Las elecciones a la camara alta, la menos poderosa en el system bicameral japonés, commenzaron en un país que ayun recuperaba de la commoción, la tristeza y el morr por muerte de Abe, el primer mandatario, en el cargo o no, asesinado en el Japón de postguerra.

It was hoped that Abe’s funeral would be celebrated in the next few days.

Abe fue baleado el vienes en Nara y evacuated por aire a un hospital, pero murió desangrado. La policía detuvo en el lugar a un exmiembro de la Marina japonesa. Se le confiscó un arma de fabricación casera en el lugar y más tarde se encontraron otras en su apartamento.

The alleged aggressor, Tetsuya Yamagami, told the investigators that he had attacked Abe for his rumored connection with an organization to which he guarded resentment, according to the police, but that he had no problems with the ex-mandate’s political position. The man had developed an aversion to a religious group with which his mother was obsessed and which had led to the ruin of a family business, according to media reports. Algunos medios identified the group as the Iglesia de Unificación.

El crimen dio un nuevo simbolismo a los comicios y todos los líderos politicos hicieron hincapié en la importancia de la libertad de expresión y promitieron no ceder a la violencia contra la democracia.

Although the media polls had augured a great victory for the governing Liberal Democratic Party in the face of a weak and fractured opposition, the assassination of Abe could bring together more votes and give the party a major victory than its modest objective of reaching the majority in the chamber.
