Nikkei climbs 1.3 pct to 8-month high after LDP victory

TOKYO, Dec 17 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average climbed 1.3
percent to an eight-month high in early trade on Monday, boosted
by a weaker yen after the conservative Liberal Democratic Party,
which favours aggressive monetary easing, won Sunday's election
by a landslide.
     The Nikkei advanced 123.41 percent to 9,860.97,
while the broader Topix index gained 1 percent to
808.91.
