Why Turnbull's new energy plan may not be so good for coal – explainer

Among the various generator types, coal-fired power is the biggest security threat to the grid. The prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, has no doubt been selling his new national energy guarantee to many of his colleagues by arguing it will be good for coal power. Retailers will be forced to buy power that has a relatively low emissions profile, but also buy enough “reliable power” so that they can keep the lights on.

Japan's Emperor Akihito is likely to abdicate at the end of March 2019 and Crown Prince Naruhito is expected to ascend the throne in April, the first abdication by a Japanese monarch in nearly two centuries, the Asahi newspaper reported on Friday. The government is in the final stage of formalising the schedule, said the Asahi, citing several sources.

Top Asian News 3:10 a.m. GMT

BEIJING (AP) — In "Wolf Warrior II," Chinese action star Wu Jing portrays a super-patriot who rescues both fellow countrymen and oppressed Africans with help from the People's Liberation Army. Audiences loved what became China's biggest-grossing movie ever. Some reportedly sang the national anthem as the movie closed on an image of a Chinese passport and the words, "Please remember, at your back stands a strong motherland." This red-blooded nationalism has been channeled skillfully by Communist Party leader President Xi Jinping as he seeks to strengthen the party's role in Chinese life and shepherd the country's rise as a superpower. Xi's muscular foreign policy could become even more assertive following this month's party congress, where he's expected to get a second five-year term as party secretary general.

New Zealand Prime Minister-elect Jacinda Ardern said she would spend Friday ironing out issues and ministerial posts with coalition partner New Zealand First, one day after becoming the Pacific nation's youngest leader in more than 150 years. The previous night's highly anticipated announcement by New Zealand First leader Winston Peters that he would support 37-year-old Ardern's Labour Party had ended a decade of centre-right National rule and spelt big changes for the country's economy. The New Zealand dollar - the world's 11th-most traded currency - fell as investors grappled with heightened uncertainty and a more protectionist agenda.
