TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese Economy Minister Toshimitsu Motegi said on Friday he thinks voters have a deeper appreciation and understanding of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s economic policies.

Motegi, speaking to reporters, also said he wants to work hard to earn voters’ support in the final days before an election on Sunday.

Abe’s ruling coalition is on course for a comfortable election victory and will keep its two-thirds majority in the lower house, according to domestic public opinion polls.
