The liftoff is taken only four days ahead Japan's general election. Main political parties also condemned the DPRK for launching the rocket.

Jun Azumi, acting secretary general of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan headed by Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda, said DPRK' s act can not be tolerated.

Japan's main opposition party, the Liberal Democratic Party led by former prime minister Shinzo Abe, said in a statement that the launch damaged peace and stability in the East Asian region and is a challenge against the international community.
