Fumio Kishida sworn in as the new Prime Minister of Japan

Fumio Kishida was inaugurated on Monday as the new prime minister of Japan in an extraordinary parliamentary session after his victory in the primaries of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (PLD).

Kishida’s appointment was formally ratified in a vote in both houses, in which the ruling coalition has a large majority, and succeeds Yoshihide Suga, who resigned in the previous hours en bloc along with his Cabinet after just over a year at the head of the Executive.

The new head of Government plans to announce the composition of his Government in the next few hours, in which it is expected that more than a dozen portfolios will be headed by first-time ministers and that he will hold key positions, in a search for some stability in the face of the imminent general elections.
