Tokyo, September 1
Former Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida formally introduced on Tuesday that he would run for a ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) election to decide on Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s successor.
Abe stated on Friday he was resigning due to poor well being, his long-running battle with ulcerative colitis ending his tenure as Japan’s longest-serving Prime Minister.
The president of the LDP is just about assured of being Prime Minister due to the occasion’s majority in Parliament’s decrease home. Reuters
