Japan's major opposition Liberal Democratic Party Secretary-General Shigeru Ishiba smiles as he prepares to put a rosette on the name of one of those elected in parliamentary elections at the party headquarters in Tokyo, Sunday, Dec. 16, 2012. Japanese media exit polls showed the LDP, that ruled Japan for most of the post-World War II era until it was dumped in 2009 elections, won a clear majority in parliamentary elections, signaling a rightward shift in the government that could further heighten tensions with China. Japanese on the board reads: Liberal Democratic Party. (AP Photo/Junji Kurokawa)
