He was made the 90th Prime Minister of Japan following Junichiro Koizumi in 2006 but stepped down after a year on September 12, 2007. The official reason to end his term was missing support for Japan's mission in Iraq, however, he had been involved in a number of crises for the last couple of months.

In 2012 he was once again made party leader, and the LDP went on to win the election in December 2012 by a wide margin.

He was born in Shinjuku, Tokyo, but Constituency is in Yamaguchi Prefecture, inherited from his father Shintarō Abe.
