Description Prime Minister of Japan

The Prime Minister of Japan is the head of government of Japan. Since World War II, the office has been appointed by the Emperor upon advice of the Japanese Diet and by convention is the leader of the majority party which has usually been the Liberal Democratic Party. Because of the factionized and consensus nature of Japanese politics, the Prime Minister has very little power. His position as President of the majority party involves negotiation with party faction leaders, and legislation is usually initiated and reviewed by party committees rather than by the cabinet. Furthermore, substantial power is actually wielded by the Japanese civil service over which the Prime Minister has little control.
