Regarding Reconstruction Minister Akiba, who has been pointed out one after another about problems such as politics and money, Izumi, representative of the Constitutional Democratic Party, said, "Reconstruction administration is stagnating, and trust as a politician and minister is lost." Prime Minister Kishida stressed that the decision to replace should be made as soon as possible.

Regarding Reconstruction Minister Akiba, it was reported that the public secretary was campaigning for the House of Representatives election last year after receiving a reward. It has been pointed out that there is a suspicion of violating the Public Offices Election Law, such as admitting that he was standing on the street wearing a mask.

In addition, it is pointed out that there is a point of contact with related groups of the former Unification Church.

Izumi, the representative of the Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan, told reporters in Minamiaizu, Fukushima Prefecture, where he was visiting, ``Minister Akiba should resign immediately. Reconstruction administration is stagnant. The minister should be replaced in order to proceed smoothly with reconstruction."

After that, ``I think Prime Minister Kishida, who thinks he has fulfilled his accountability in the exchange at the Budget Committee yesterday, is paralyzed or has a broken sense. Minister Akiba is a politician. And the trust as a minister has been lost, and Prime Minister Kishida should make a decision quickly." Prime Minister Kishida emphasized that he should make a decision quickly.
