Japan's Shinzo Abe: 'Party must achieve results'


Shinzo Abe says his party must "move forward and achieve results" following its landslide election victory.

The conservative Liberal Democratic Party won almost 300 seats and, with its coalition partner, looks set for a two-thirds majority in the lower house.

The governing Democratic Party suffered major losses in Sunday's polls, with leader Yoshihiko Noda stepping down.
