Japan's ruling party and partners win enough votes to form a supermajority in an upper house election held just days after the assassination of ex-PM Shinzo Abe

The ruling coalition is expected to win 280 seats, down from its previous total of 305, weakening the dominance of the Liberal Democratic Party in the parliament.
Japan's elections are key to Shinzo Abe's plan to roll back Japan's pacifist constitution, but surveys point to lukewarm public interest in the race, and expectations of low-voter turnout.
