Has Abe brought stability to Japan's chaotic politics?

Shinzo Abe could become country's third-longest serving prime minister if he stays in power until 2018.

    Saturday, December 26, marks three years since Shinzo Abe became Japan's prime minister.

    His main focus has been to fix the country's economy with a set of policies, widely known as Abenomics.

    He marked the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Nagasaki by renewing his commitment to a nuclear-weapons-free Japan last month.

    If Abe stays in power until 2018, he will become the country's third-longest serving leader since World War II.

    Rachel Mealey in Tokyo looks at whether that could become a possibility.
