Lower voting age leaves many wondering 'Where's Japan's Bernie?' | Reuters

TOKYO From a shrinking population and a social welfare system creaking under huge ranks of retirees to a stagnant economy that is all they have ever known, Japanese youth have plenty to gripe about. But despite a lowering of the voting age to 18 from 20 ahead of a July national poll, few see hope for a youth-driven movement like the one that energised U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders' campaign for Democratic Party presidential nomination #United States #Business #Japan #Middle East #Entertainment

EU leaders tell Britain to exit swiftly, market rout halts | Reuters

LONDON/BRUSSELS European leaders told Britain on Tuesday to act quickly to resolve the political and economic chaos unleashed by its vote to leave the European Union, a move the IMF said could put pressure on global growth. Financial markets recovered slightly after the result of Thursday's referendum wiped a record $3 trillion off global shares and sterling fell to its lowest level in 31 years, but trading was volatile and policymakers said they would take all necessary measures to protect their economies #India #Japan #France #Europe #South Korea #polls #article

Japan upper house poll campaign begins, Abe's ruling bloc leads | Reuters

TOKYO Campaigning for an election to Japan's upper house of parliament begins on Wednesday, as surveys give Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's ruling bloc the lead, despite doubts about his growth policies and desire to revise the post-war pacifist constitution. Abe's coalition is in no danger of losing power in the election but he needs a solid win to keep his Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) lawmakers in line and perhaps stay on another three years after his tenure as LDP president expires in 2018. Abe is casting the July 10 election for half the seats in the 242-member chamber as a referendum on his decision to delay a planned hike in an unpopular sales tax and his "Abenomics" recipe of hyper-easy monetary policy, spending and reform. #Japan #Middle East #markets #United Kingdom #Election
