Japan's conservative Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) is on track for a stunning victory in Sunday's election, returning to power with hawkish former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the helm, and possibly ending Japan's political gridlock. The surveys showed that Noda's DPJ, which surged to power three years ago promising to pay more heed to consumers than corporations and break bureaucrats' stranglehold on policymaking, could win fewer than 70 seats.

Japan's Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda, leader of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ), delivers a speech to voters atop a campaign van at Shinjuku district in Tokyo December 15, 2012, on the last election campaign day for Sunday's general election. Japan's conservative Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) is on track for a stunning victory in Sunday's election, returning to power with hawkish former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the helm, and possibly ending Japan's political gridlock. The surveys showed that Noda's DPJ, which surged to power three years ago promising to pay more heed to consumers than corporations and break bureaucrats' stranglehold on policymaking, could win fewer than 70 seats. That would be its worst showing since its founding in 1998, the Nikkei newspaper reported. REUTERS/Issei Kato (JAPAN - Tags: ELECTIONS POLITICS)

The rocket, which North Korea says was designed to put a weather satellite into orbit, has been labelled by the United States, South Korea and Japan as a test of technology that could one day deliver a nuclear warhead capable of hitting targets as far as the continental the United States.
