The MPs’ approval comes after the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) elected 64-year-old Kishida as the new leader. In September incumbent Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga announced his withdrawal from the election to head the LDP. This simply meant that he would resign as the head of the government. At the same time, according to media reports, Toshimitsu Motegi is going to remain as Foreign Minister. On the other hand, Hirokazu Matsuno will remain the Chief Cabinet Secretary.
