Support for Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe slid in opinion polls after his ruling coalition steamrolled through parliament a tough secrecy act, Reuters reported. Support for the government fell 13.9 points to 54.6 percent in a poll by broadcaster JNN, the lowest since he took office. However, backing for the main opposition Democratic Party rose just 0.9 point to 6.8 percent and the 30.3 percent who supported Abe's ruling Liberal Democratic Party. Abe said he should have taken more time to explain the bill carefully. Critics fear the legislation could muzzle media and allow officials to hide misdeeds.
