PROTESTORS have urged Japanese leader Shinzo Abe to ‘protect Japan’ against the growing threat posed by North Korea as the country prepares to vote in a snap election tomorrow.

Mr Abe’s popularity has slumped in recent months following a series of corruption scandals, but his tough stance on the rogue state has gone down well with voters and he is expected to be re-elected.

A key factor in his popularity boost is a shift in policy on North Korea.

Instead of diplomacy, Mr Abe has recently taken a much more hard-line approach, similar to that of President Donald Trump, focussed on sanctions and increased pressure on the regime.

And he is pushing to strengthen Japan’s military as well as changing a 70-year-old constitutional clause which prevents the county from going to war.

At a pre-election rally in Tokyo today, protestors held a banner which read: “Prime Minister Abe, please protect Japan”.

The nation is well within range of North Korea’s current arsenal of nuclear and conventional weapons, and last month terrified residents on the northern island of Hokkaido were awoken by air raid sirens after a test launch by the rogue state blasted overhead.

Following the launch, Mr Abe described Kim Jong-un’s actions as “utterly unacceptable”.

He said: “If North Korea continues to walk this road, there will be no bright future.
