The disapproval rating of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe’s cabinet exceeds its approval rating, the second time in a six month period, Japan News Network (JNN) reported.

According to the latest JNN opinion poll conducted among 1,200 people aged over 18, Abe cabinet's approval rating dropped by 9.3 points to 40.0 percent, compared with last month. On the other hand, the disapproval rating increased by 9.5 points to 58.4 percent.

A disapproval rating higher than the approval rating was only seen almost half a year ago.

Also, the approval rating of 40.0 percent is the second lowest since the establishment of the second Abe administration.
