Abe rejects calls to resign in the aftermath of election defeat

테스트

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe walks out of his press conference on July 30, one day after his Liberal Democratic Party lost big in the Upper House elections in Tokyo. Abe rejected calls to resign, saying it would create a power vacuum, but said he would revamp his Cabinet after the humiliating election defeat that signaled a broad voter revolt against his government.
