Shinzo Abe was a Japanese politician who served as Prime Minister of Japan and President of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) from 2006 to 2007 and from 2012 to 2020.
Shinzo Abe was the longest-serving prime minister in Japanese history.
Shinzo Abe also served as Chief Cabinet Secretary from 2005 to 2006 under Junichiro Koizumi and was briefly opposition leader in 2012.
Shinzo Abe was born into a prominent political family in Tokyo and was the grandson of Prime Minister Nobusuke Kishi. After graduating from Seikei University and briefly attending the University of Southern California, Abe was elected to the House of Representatives in the 1993 election.
In 2005, Abe was appointed Chief Cabinet Secretary by Koizumi and replaced him as prime minister and LDP president the following year.
Shinzo Abe was confirmed as prime minister by a special session of the National Diet, becoming Japan’s youngest post-war prime minister and the first born after World War II.
Shinzo Abe resigned as prime minister after one year due to medical complications from ulcerative colitis, shortly after his party’s loss in the 2007 House of Councillors election.
Shinzo Abe was replaced by Yasuo Fukuda, who became the first in a series of five prime ministers who failed to retain office for more than sixteen months.
After recovering, Abe staged an unexpected political comeback by defeating Shigeru Ishiba, the former defense minister, to become LDP president in 2012.
Following the LDP’s landslide victory in that year’s general election, Abe became the first former prime minister to return to office since Shigeru Yoshida in 1948.
Shinzo Abe led the LDP to further victories in the 2014 and 2017 elections, becoming Japan’s longest-serving prime minister.
In 2020, Abe resigned as prime minister, citing a relapse of his colitis, and was succeeded by Yoshihide Suga.
Shinzo Abe was a staunch conservative whom political commentators had described as a right-wing Japanese nationalist.
Associated with the Nippon Kaigi, he held negationist views on Japanese history, including denying the role of government coercion in the recruitment of comfort women during World War II, a position that caused tensions, particularly with South Korea.
Under his premiership, relations between the two further strained in 2019 when Abe stated that any issues concerning Japan’s rule of Korea were previously resolved in a 1965 treaty and that further requests for reparations meant that South Korea had violated the treaty.
Earlier that same year, Abe’s government initiated a trade war with South Korea after the country’s Supreme Court stated that reparations should be made by Japanese companies that had benefited from forced labor.
Abe was also considered a hard-liner concerning Japan’s military policies.
In 2007, he was the initiator of the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (QUAD) with three other countries during his first tenure as prime minister, aimed at resisting China’s rise as an economic and military superpower.
He advocated reforming the Japan Self-Defense Forces (JSDF) by revising Article 9 of the pacifist Japanese constitution that outlawed the country from declaring war.
He enacted military reforms in 2015 that allowed Japan to exercise collective security and JSDF deployments overseas, the passage of which was controversial and met with protests.
Economically, Abe’s premiership was also known for his attempts to counter Japan’s economic stagnation, nicknamed Abenomics, with mixed results.
On 8 July 2022, Abe was assassinated by a former Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force sailor while delivering a campaign speech in Nara ahead of the 10 July election. The suspect purportedly targeted Abe because of perceived ties with the Unification Church.
On 26 December 2012, the Diet formally elected Abe as prime minister, with the support of 328 out of 480 members of the House of Representatives.
He and his second cabinet, which he called a crisis-busting cabinet, were sworn in later that day.
The new government included LDP heavyweights such as former prime minister Taro Aso as Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister, Yoshihide Suga as Chief Cabinet Secretary, and Akira Amari as Economy Minister.
Following his victory, Abe said, With the strength of my entire cabinet, I will implement bold monetary policy, flexible fiscal policy, and a growth strategy that encourages private investment, and with these three policy pillars, achieve results.
In February 2013 Abe gave an address at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C., in which he explained his economic and diplomatic objectives, and that he had returned to the prime ministership to prevent Japan from becoming a Tier Two Nation, declaring that Japan is back.
On 8 July 2022, Abe was shot while delivering a campaign speech in Nara.
He was supporting fellow LDP party member Kei Satō for the House of Councillors election.
The assassin used a homemade firearm which fired two shots, the first shot missed and prompted Abe to turn around, at which point a second shot was fired, hitting Abe in the neck and chest area.
He was struck fatally in the heart. A 41-year-old man named Tetsuya Yamagami, a former JMSDF sailor who served for three years from 2002 to 2005, was arrested following the shooting and later confessed to local police.
Yamagami stated that he held a grudge against the Unification Church and shot Abe because he believed that the religious group and Abe were connected.
Yamagami said he resented the fact that his mother was brainwashed by the religious group and went bankrupt.
He also stated that he killed Abe because he believed the former prime minister was the one who spread the religion to Japan.
Yamagami said that he didn’t have a grudge against Abe’s political beliefs.
Abe was rushed to the Nara Medical University Hospital in Kashihara, where he was pronounced dead at 17:03 JST.
before he arrived at the hospital, Abe had already shown no vital signs.
Despite a transfusion of 100 units of blood, the blood loss was too significant and attempts to resuscitate Abe failed.
He was 67 years old at the time of his death.
In response to the shooting and his subsequent passing, numerous present and former world leaders expressed their sympathies and support for Abe.
His body was returned to Tokyo the day after his assassination and his funeral is scheduled for 12 July 2022.
