He won 10 times in a row. Under the administration of former Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi, he has been prominent in tackling the issue of Japanese abduction by North Korea and has served as party secretary-general and chief cabinet secretary.


He became prime minister in September 2006 at the youngest age of 52 after the war. However, due to the effects of the “disappearing pension” problem, he lost the 2007 Upper House election. Partly due to the exacerbation of his chronic ulcerative colitis, he retired in just one year.

When the Liberal Democratic Party returned to the party president in September 2012 when he was an opposition party, he regained power from the former Democratic Party in the House of Representatives election in December of the same year.

Including this, he won six consecutive national elections in both houses of the Diet and established the “Abe 1st strength” system led by the Prime Minister’s Office. During his tenure, he raised the consumption tax rate to 10%.

He was also involved in the May 19th Reiwa Kaigen and the bid for the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics held in 2009. He also actively developed summit diplomacy. He has a strong presence on the international stage, including having close ties with former President Trump of the United States and President Putin of Russia.

However, the abduction issue, which he regarded as the most important issue of his administration, and the Northern Territories issue with Russia could not make progress. On the other hand, with the prolongation of the administration, scandals such as the Moritomo-Kakei Gakuen problem have continued.

He was pursued by the opposition as a “privatization of power.” In September 2008, he resigned for the second time due to the recurrence of his chronic illness while he was busy with measures against the new coronavirus. After that, as the chairman of the Abe faction, he repeatedly made positive statements in economics, diplomacy, and security, and influenced the administration of Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.
