A majority of the public opposes the prospect of the Abe administration amending the Constitution, the results of a nationwide telephone survey show.

The results of the survey, conducted Friday and Saturday by Kyodo News, said about 56.5 percent of the respondents are against the idea of revising the war-renouncing 1947 Constitution under Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, while one-third, or 33.4 percent, support it.
