Will Japan amend its constitution to change or eliminate Article 9?

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has proposed amending the country's constitution--which has remained unchanged since it was introduce by the occupying American authorities following the end of WW2--in 2020. One of the proposed changes is a modification of Article 9, which states that Japan will not have military forces.
