Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says his forecast win in yesterday's upper house elections will help him form a stable cabinet, ending political volatility.

Exit polls suggest his ruling coalition will get at least 71 of the 121 seats being contested.

This would give Abe control of both houses of parliament for the first time in six years.

The prime minister said the result was an endorsement of his more conservative economic and political reforms.
