Japan’s Prime Minister resigns from his position because of his health deterioration.

He said his illness shouldn’t have baffled in the cause of decision making and he continued apologizing to Japanese people for leaving his duties before ending his term.

The prime minister apologized on TV saying, “I need to fight the disease and need to be treated.”

“For almost eight years I controlled my chronic disease, however, this year in June I had a regular check-up and there was a sign of the disease,” He also added.

This Japanese leader has long suffered from non-curable ulcerative colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease, reports show he has lived with this disease since his teenage.

“I cannot be the Prime Minister if I cannot make the best decisions for the people. I have decided to step down from my post,” Abe, 65, said in the press conference.

Amid his previous term as the prime minister in 2007, he had the same cause for his resignation.

Prime minister was known for his hawkish policies and his signature economic strategies as Abenomics, He is also prominent as the longest-serving prime minister since 2012.
