Japanese PM to Resign by September 30

Japan‘s Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga to resign for the post of Prime Minister, Kyodo news reported. Party sources said he would not fight in the ruling party leadership race in September. Suga thought to reshuffle his cabinet and party officials, but those plans are no longer valid, two party sources told Reuters.

Fumio Kishida, a former foreign minister, will be fighting in elections for the party leader post. Kishida had criticised Suga’s planning against coronavirus and requested an incentive package to fight the covid-19 pandemic. Unlike last year, grassroots LDP members will also vote with its members of parliament, which makes the party leadership elections a bit harder to predict.
