The Japanese Emperor wants to leave the throne
Japanese Emperor Akihito on Monday will perform live in order to give a rare interview. While the exact details are kept secret, many expect that the 82-year-old Akihito will speak to inform that it can no longer fully perform their duties as Emperor.

The time that remains unspoken, is that the Emperor wishes to retire. This move will mark the first abdication of the Japanese monarch in over 200 years.

Japanese TV stations are preparing to remove from the air a special report. Pre-recorded video message will be shown at 3 PM local time, which nesomnenno, will be carefully formed, given the circumstances. The postwar Constitution of Japan does not allow the aging Emperor to resign.

The law requires that the Emperor has served in the position until death. If he becomes incapacitated, his successor could act as Regent. Any change in the law of the Imperial house shall require the approval of the Japanese Parliament, which is currently focused on controversial changes to the pacifist Constitution.

The abdication may detract from the constitutional amendments that uphold the ruling coalition of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and stimulate the debate about inheritance in Japan the Throne, including women who wish to have the opportunity to ascend to the chrysanthemum Throne, the world's oldest hereditary monarchy.

The Agency of the Imperial court, which oversees the Affairs of the Emperor and his family, declined to comment on Monday expected performance of Akihito. The eldest son of the Emperor, 56-Lenti Naruhito crown Prince, next in line to the throne, and he had some duties of the father.

In recent years, the Emperor suffered from a health problem. Cardiac disease and cancer treatment struck by his ability to perform his duties. The Emperor and Empress had long kept a busy schedule of more than 250 public meetings per year and the 75th annual trips within and outside Japan. But more than 100 of these meetings per year will be canceled, or reassigned to the heir. Renunciation would be unusual for the last years, but hardly unprecedented in the history of Japan. Almost half of the emperors left the throne while he was alive, according to NHK.
