Before the start of the special session of parliament, which will last until Friday, the cabinet resigned en masse, as required by the country’s constitution, and the prime minister is expected to present his second government this afternoon, reports the Japanese news agency Kiodo.

Kishida took over the post after winning the PLD’s support a month ago to replace the resigned Yoshihide Suga as prime minister.
