Remodeling Cabinet Looking at numbers… 4: 14 on September 11th
Let's take a look at the remodeled cabinet to be established today.
Average age 61.55
The average age of Prime Minister Abe and the 19 ministers is 61.55 years, 1.85 years younger than the 63.40 years of the 4th Abe Reform Cabinet established last October.
The highest age is Taro Aso and Naoichi Takemoto, 78 years old. Mr. Aso has the earliest birthday and the oldest. The youngest is Shinjiro Koizumi, 38 years old. It will be the third youngest after the war, following Yuko Ogura, who was appointed as the minister in charge of the declining birthrate at the age of 34, and Seiko Noda, who was appointed as the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications at the age of 37.
Looking at Prime Minister Abe and 19 ministers by age group, there are 6 in their 70s, 4 in their 60s, 9 in their 50s, 0 in their 40s, and 1 in their 30s.
Two female ministers
There were two women, Sanae Takaichi and Seiko Hashimoto, who added one more than before the remodeling.
Two people from the House of Councilors
The entrance to the House of Councilors was Seiko Hashimoto and Junichi Eto, one less than before the remodeling. As the Abe Cabinet, it is the smallest alongside the second Abe Cabinet.
Number of winners 13 to 4
Looking at the members of the House of Representatives according to the number of elections, Mr. Taro Aso has the most 13 times. There are four lessons by Shinjiro Koizumi. In addition, 9 are 1 person, 8 are 6 persons, 7 are 2 persons, 6 are 5 persons, and 5 are 1 person.
13 people are new to the first cabinet
Ministers of the 4th Abe 2nd remodeling cabinet were 13 for the first time, 2 for the re-entry, 2 people for the skid staying in the cabinet after changing the post, and 2 for the resignation.
The first entry exceeded 12 people at the time of the cabinet remodeling in October last year, and it became the largest in the Abe cabinet. Of the 13 people who entered the first cabinet, there were 11 members of the Liberal Democratic Party called the “Cabinet Waiting Group” who have no ministerial experience in the House of Representatives more than 5 times in the House of Representatives and more than 3 times in the House of Councilors.
Taking into account the recommendations from each faction, the “standby group” members are actively appointed, but there are still about 60 “standby group” members in the LDP.
On the other hand, there were only two people, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Aso and Secretary of the Secretary of War, and the other 17 posts were replaced, making it the largest remodeling in the Abe Cabinet.
6 factions, no factions
Looking at each Liberal Democratic faction, the number of non-faction members who were not in the faction was the largest among the six. Among them, the appointment of members such as Sanae Takaichi, Katsuyuki Kawai, Kazuhide Kajiwara, and other prime ministers such as Prime Minister Abe and Secretary of the Secretary of War is prominent.
Looking at each faction, the Hosoda faction remains the same as before the remodeling, the Aso faction declines two people, the Takeshita faction remains two, the Kishida faction decreases by one, two people, and the second floor faction changes I became two people. Before the remodeling, one person had entered the stone-breaking group, but this time there was no entry. The Ishihara school did not enter the cabinet following the previous one.
While the main factions were appointed in a well-balanced manner, there was no entry from the stone-breaking group that fought for the presidential election last year.
