Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced the victory of his coalition led  party in the Senate election but failed to get a big majority, in support of his intention to amend the country’s Constitution.

The decision allowed Abe, 64, the longest serving Prime Minister of Japan, to achieve its goal of implementing its mandate ahead of next year’s consumer tax increase, as well as trade negotiations with Washington.

“The ruling party has won the majority and the public decided that we continue to implement various policies in a stable political environment.

“I really want to fulfill their expectations,” he told Nippon Hoso Kyokai NHK , Japan Broadcasting Corporation at the Liberal Democratic Party’s headquarters.

Led by LDP and its affiliated partner, Shinzo Abe’s party Komeito is predicted to dominate at least 69 seats from 124 seats contested, in the polls yesterday.

According to NHK, the number is more than half the seats contested and six seats are still undetermined.

Both parties dominated 70 seats out of 245 undisputed seats, allowing them to obtain the majority needed in the hall.

The forecast by NHK and the budget made by other media, is based on the number of votes cast and other analysis.

However, the official decision will only be known at the earliest on Monday.
