Shinzo Abe, Shigeru Ishiba in the running for vote to decide Japan’s Prime Minister until 2021

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and one-time defence minister Shigeru Ishiba were formally nominated to compete in an internal Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) election on Sept 20 that will decide who will be its President for the next three years.

As the LDP is Japan’s ruling party, the winner will be prime minister until 2021.
