Japan’s PM Taro Aso Dissolves Parliament
Japan’s PM Taro Aso has decided to dissolve Japan's Parliament as early as next week and called for the general elections to be held on August 30, 2009. The announcement comes in the wake of Sunday's defeat of the ruling coalition of Japan's PM against the Democratic Party of Japan in the local Tokyo election. The defeat of Aso's Liberal Democratic Party has ended the party's dominance in Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly and jeopardized the party's chances in the general election originally set for the fall this year.
