    Polls in Japan's parliamentary elections have closed with a predicted moderate turnout. Up to 40 per cent of voters were undecided before polling began. Political observers, however, predict that Liberal Democratic Party leader and former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will return to power. Abe has served as prime minister between 2006 and 2007.
