Population slump tests Japan PM

Ageing and declining population poses challenge to Shinzo Abe likely to be re-elected in Sunday’s vote.

Japan is heading to the polls for Sunday’s snap election.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s ruling party is expected to win what’s being seen as a referendum on how he is handling the struggling economy.

One of the key challenges for Japan lies in its population – which is getting older and smaller.
