Yoshihide Suga takes charge as Japanese Prime minister

Date: 18 September 2020 Tags: Appointments & Resignations
  • The Japanese parliament has confirmed Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga as the country’s new prime minister, replacing the outgoing premier Shinzo Abe.
  • The longest-serving prime minister since the end of World War II, Abe’s decision to resign was widely considered the end of an era in Japan.
  • Suga’s premiership is expected to be characterized by a substantial degree of policy continuity.
  • Suga’s main priority will be dealing with Japan’s slumping economy, which has taken a hit since the beginning of the pandemic despite the country’s success in avoiding the high numbers of cases and deaths seen elsewhere.
