Prime Minister Kishida is making final adjustments in the direction of continuing to appoint Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Hagiuda of the LDP's Abe faction in important government positions such as important cabinet ministers and four party roles.

Prime Minister Kishida held talks with Secretary-General Motegi and Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Hagiuda, who belongs to the Abe faction, at the Prime Minister's official residence on the 7th for the cabinet reshuffle and the appointment of LDP officers on the 10th.

Based on this, Prime Minister Kishida is making final adjustments to continue appointing Minister Hagiuda as an important cabinet member and four key government posts, including retention.

By treating Minister Hagiuda, who was a close aide to the deceased former Prime Minister Abe, Prime Minister Kishida seems to have the aim of showing an attitude of emphasizing the Abe faction, the largest faction within the party, in managing the government.

Prime Minister Kishida intends to retain Chief Cabinet Secretary Matsuno in the Cabinet reshuffle, and to retain Vice President Aso and Secretary-General Motegi in party officer appointments.

On top of that, in addition to strengthening responses to internal and external issues, the policy is to proceed with the selection of officers while considering the relationship with the former Unification Church. We have decided to appoint a discretionary person and accelerate the adjustment of personnel affairs.
