"Prime Minister Abe's campaign is like his monologue. The constitution is a very low priority for voters," Edano said. "The result we saw was more than one-third of voters saying they are not allowing an LDP-proposed revision that deteriorates the constitution. Clearly, that is the people's will."
Party chief Yukio Edano said his party's advance underscored a growing number of voters who are dissatisfied with Abe's policies.
