Japan Gets A New Prime Minister , Yoshihide Suga Takes Over From Shinzo Abe

Yoshihide Suga, the new leader of the Liberal Democratic Party, was elected Japan’s prime minister by the powerful House of Representatives reported a news agency.

According to Kyodo News, his immediate focus would be on reviving the battered economy while keeping the novel coronavirus under control.

Suga pledged to push forward with former prime minister Shinzo Abe policies such “Abenomics,” a mix of measures aimed at beating deflation and spurring growth in the world’s third-largest economy.

The 71-year-old farmer’s son, who unlike Abe and many other lawmakers in Japan is not the scion of a political dynasty, has hinted at the possibility of additional steps to shore up the economy, Kyodo News reported.
