Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s support rose 10 points to outstrip his disapproval rating for the first time since February, a survey showed June 25, boosting his chance of becoming Japan’s longest-serving premier.

Abe’s ratings have been on a roller coaster since last year, when the public learned of the heavily discounted sale of state-owned land to a school operator with ties to his wife. Questions also arose over government approval for a new veterinary school set up by another educational body headed by a friend of the prime minister.

Abe’s support rate jumped to 52 percent in a June 22-24 survey by the Nikkei, while his disapproval rating fell to 42 percent.

Those backing the prime minister cited his global view and the stability of his government as the reason ー but a hefty majority of voters still don’t think the scandals have been resolved, the paper said.

If Abe wins re-election as head of the Liberal Democratic Party and the LDP stay in power, he would be on track to be the longest-serving prime minister. (Reuters)
