Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe comfortably won re-election today, with his ruling coalition securing an unassailable majority in the lower house.

Private broadcaster TBS projected his Liberal Democratic Party would win 294 seats while its junior partner Komeito would get 34, for a combined 328 seats.

Other broadcaster, who also conducted exit polls, gave similar figures.

The two-thirds majority in the powerful lower house allows the government to override the upper chamber, where the opposition is stronger, and force legislation through.
