Abe Shinzo (born 安倍 晋三 on September 21, 1954) is the current Prime Minister of Japan, and is the president of the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan. The Liberal Democratic Party of Japan differs vastly from the Democratic Party of the United States. In Japan, liberalism adheres to the understanding of liberal and democratic values as outlined in Jeffersonian Democracy, and are thus closer to libertarian values.

Abe is known for his conservative views on a number of issues, and his numerous libertarian actions. Abe has also promoted nationalist policies as prime minister,[1] and he supports low immigration levels.[2] A nationalist, Abe and his cabinet have taken an unapologetic stance toward their country and its history.[3] He has supported a strong defense policy.[4]

On November 20, 2019, Abe became Japan's longest-serving prime minister.[5][6]
