Japan’s parliament appoints Fumio Kishida as prime minister

After Fumio Kishida recently became chairman of the Liberal Democratic Party (PLD), he was named Prime Minister of the country this Monday by the Japanese parliament, the so-called National Diet.

Kishida, who previously held the foreign relations department of former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, will replace Yoshihide Suga at the head of the government and its education as soon as he does not apply for re-election as leader of the PLD.

Kishida previously served as Japan’s foreign minister, and his efforts were aimed at improving and strengthening Japanese relations with his allies, Japanese radio TV station NHK recalls.

The next step for the new prime minister will be to convene the first session of his cabinet, although there is also speculation that he could call elections for the lower house on October 31, the Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun points out.
