End of an era in Japan

The Herald reports:

The left-of-centre Democratic Party of was set to win 300 or more of the 480 seats in the lower house of parliament, according to exit polls by all major Japanese TV networks.

The ousted Liberal Democrats have governed Japan for all but 11 months since 1955.

Hopefully the end of LDP monopoly on power will be good for the LDP in reforming itself.
