About Shinzō Abe
Shinzō Abe made a name for himself in the history of Japanese politics when he became the country’s longest-serving prime minister. He was first in power from 2006 until his resignation in 2007, attributing the latter action to a medical condition, ulcerative colitis.
Upon recovery, he returned to politics in 2012 to contest the presidency of the Liberal Democratic Party, which he won and subsequently became prime minister for the second time after the party won the general elections three months later. Abe’s political career started in 1993as a member of the House of Representatives for Yamaguchi.
He was born to Yoko and politician Shintaro Abe, who was a member of the House of Representatives. He has two brothers: Hironobu Abe and Nobuo Kishi. He has been married to Akie Matsuzaki since 1987.
He was named in the Time 100 lists of 2014 and 2018. He was also the recipient of the Herman Khan Award in 2013.
He resigned from office in September 2020 because his ulcerative colitis had re-emerged.

Famous quotes by Shinzō Abe
I have experienced failure as a politician and for that very reason, I am ready to give everything for Japan.Shinzō Abe
I have to express sympathy from the bottom of my heart to those people who were taken as wartime comfort women. As a human being, I would like to express my sympathies, and also as prime minister of Japan I need to apologize to them.Shinzō Abe
To protect people's lives and keep our children safe, we must implement public-works spending and do so proudly. If possible, I'd like to see the Bank of Japan purchase all of the construction bonds that we need to issue to cover the cost. That would also forcefully circulate money in the market. That would be positive for the economy, too.Shinzō Abe
