Members of the cabinet have changed a lot. Among the 19 cabinet members in the new cabinet, four remain as Deputy Prime Minister and finance minister, Taro Aso, and Chief Cabinet Secretary Kan Yiwei. For the first time, 13 have joined the cabinet, and two have joined the cabinet in the past.

Due to the constitutional amendment and the sensitive period of Japan, Korea, Japan and Russia, the Tokyo Olympic Games will also be held soon. The composition of the new cabinet will undoubtedly have a profound impact on Japans future policy direction.

On the morning of the 11th local time, the Liberal Democratic Party held a temporary general meeting to formally determine the new high-level list within the Party. That afternoon, Chief Cabinet Secretary Kan Yiwei announced a new cabinet list at a press conference.

In this cabinet, except General Minister Gao Shizao Miao and Olympic Minister Saint-Son Hashimoto, the other cabinet members are all men. On the faction side, there are six factions in the Party, three in Aso and Hotan factions, two in Bamboo, two in second and two in Hamada factions, and one in Gongming Party.

In the cabinet, Chief Housing Officer Kan Yiwei and Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Taro Aso remained as the skeleton of Abes regime. In addition, Taro Ono was transferred from the foreign minister to the defense minister, while Maki Min was transferred from the economic regeneration to the foreign minister and remained in the cabinet.

On the other hand, the cabinet members who have been supporting Abes LDP factions such as Hoda, Aso, Hamada and the second-and fourth-tier factions also account for 10.

In addition, senior LDP officials, Senior Secretary-General Junbo II and President of the Political Investigation, Wenxiong Yamada, were also confirmed to remain in office.

According to the analysis, this shows that Abes restructuring is mainly to seek stability, relying on the existing framework, hoping to rely on trusted to continue to maintain the regime.

Although the Cabinet seems to have a large number of new members, and there are nine members of the non-factional, sub-factional and the Citizen Party, which gives people a refreshing feeling.

However, if you look closely, you will find that key cabinet officials, such as Chief Cabinet Secretary, Defense Minister and Liberal Arts Minister, are all trusted by Abe, which fully demonstrates Abes intention to remove resistance in Cabinet Affairs and accelerate constitutional amendment.

Even Abe himself was outspoken about it. According to Japanese media reports, Abe said at the Liberal Democratic Partys high-level meeting on the 11th, will gather the strength of the whole party to vigorously promote constitutional amendment.

According to another report, aiming at the result of the cabinet restructuring, Ichiro Matsui, a representative of the Japanese Restoration Association, said that the restructuring is actually for the purpose of harmonizing the relations among the parties within the LDP, so as to achieve the purpose of constitutional amendment.

The Secretary General of the Communist Party of Japan, Xiao Chihuang, also said that the cabinet was a friend cabinet. None of the cabinet members dared to say no to Abe, suggesting that Abe would actively promote the process of constitutional amendment.

In this cabinet, there are 13 people who have joined the cabinet for the first time, which is the largest time for Abes cabinet. In particular, young people such as Koizumi Jinjiro were brought into the cabinet to serve as environment minister. He was the third youngest cabinet member in Japan after the war. Japanese media said the move could help break the stereotype of the cabinet.

Since Abe came to power for the second time, the Abe regime has lasted for nearly seven years, spanning the longest span in Japan after the war. If the members of the Cabinet remain unchanged for a long time, it will inevitably give the people a sense of conformity.

On the other hand, a recent NHK poll shows that Abes cabinet approval rate has fallen by 1 percentage point due to the impact of Japan-South Korea relations and tax increases.

So some analysts say that Abe also wants to get more support by releasing the cabinets freshness.

u2014u2014 Disputes between Japan, Korea, Japan and Russia need to be resolved urgently

Since this year, the disputes between Japan and South Korea caused by the Labor Compensation Case have intensified after several confrontations of mutual deletion, abrogation of treaty and complaint. In addition, the peace treaty negotiations between the disputed islands between Japan and Russia, which Abe urgently wants to resolve, have not progressed. Many diplomatic disputes have left Abe in deep trouble and need to be resolved urgently.

In this adjustment, Maki Minchong was appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs. According to the analysis, although Mao Mu and Abe belong to different factions within the LDP respectively, since Abe took office as prime minister in 2012, Mao Mu has successively assumed key cabinet bureaucrats and high-level important positions of the LDP; in the past two years, he has presided over trade negotiations with the United States, showing excellent performance and won Abes appreciation.

Abe may hope that Makis negotiating skills will find a way out for the current difficult diplomatic situation.

However, this important position has undergone frequent and controversial personnel changes in the past year. Sakuda Yixiao, who took office in October 2018, resigned in April 2019 due to inappropriate remarks. Abe let Junichi Suzuki, who had previously held the post, take up the post. This personnel adjustment, Suzuki Junyi took over one of the four major positions of the Liberal Democratic Party, the general affairs president, and the post of Olympic minister was handed over to the master sports administration of Saint-Son Hashimoto. Hashimoto is a Japanese female politician, a former speed skater and cyclist. He is one of the few athletes who have participated in the Summer and Winter Olympic Games and won the bronze medal in the Winter Olympic Games in 1992. In addition, Hashimoto served as vice president of the Japanese Olympic Committee. The next year will be a crucial one for Japan. Whether Abes new cabinet can properly handle various issues such as internal affairs, diplomacy, Olympics, etc., whether Japan will go further and further along the road of constitutional amendment, and what kind of impact the situation in Northeast Asia and the world will be affected will be tested by time.
