ABSTRACT

Since the collapse of ‘55 political party system’ in 1993, Japanese party system had shown a shift to 2.5 party system with the Liberal Democratic Party(LDP) and the Democratic Party of Japan(DPJ) as two main parties. However, after the defeat of the DPJ in 2012, it is witnessed that reconstruction of the LDP’s predominance started under the Abe government, as observed in national elections. There are several factors to explain the LDP’s electoral victories under Abe’s stewardship such as prime minister Abe’s leadership, economic performance, splits of opposition party etc. Among those factors, this study focus on the LDP’s voter-mobilization strategies, showing that the LDP has made efforts to recovering a clientelistic linkage, educating youth and women using party-education institutes, and increasing party membership.
