Nikkei rises 1.0 pct to 8 1/2-month high as yen weakens on LDP win

TOKYO, Dec 17 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average climbed 1.0
percent to an 8-1/2-month closing high on Monday, as the yen
weakened after the conservative Liberal Democratic Party, which
favours aggressive monetary easing, won Sunday's election by a
landslide.
    The Nikkei rose 91.32 points to 9,828.88, the
highest closing level since April 3. The broader Topix 
index advanced 0.9 percent to 807.84.
