Who will take over the vacancy of the prime minister?

The new leader will be elected by the LDP and appointed by the emperor

At present, Abe resigned before the end of his term of office. What should we do if there is a vacancy in the post of Prime Minister?

According to Article 9 of Japans cabinet law, if the prime minister is unable to continue to perform his duties, resulting in a vacancy, the Minister of state designated by him in advance will take over the prime minister temporarily and remain in office until a formal successor is appointed.

At the press conference, when referring to Abes successor, Abe did not make it clear. Zhou Yongsheng, a professor at the Institute of international relations at the Institute of foreign affairs and deputy director of the center for Japanese studies, said a new leader would be elected by the majority party of Japans parliament, the Liberal Democratic Party.

It is reported that the LDPs presidential election will be held in September. When the new president is confirmed, the parliament will hold an election ceremony, but this election is only a form. The new president of the Liberal Democratic Party will surely obtain a majority of votes and become the new Prime Minister of Japan.

According to Japanese media reports, the election of the new LDP president will take at least 12 days. However, considering that Abes resignation is a sudden situation, special measures may be taken, that is, the election of all members of the LDP will not be held, but only the meetings of the house of Representatives and the Senate of the LDP, and the new president of the LDP will be elected by the members of the two chambers.

Finally, after the appointment ceremony of the emperor of Japan, the new prime minister will officially take office. The new prime minister will succeed Abe for the rest of his term, ending in September 2021.

Prior to that, Japan also had a prime minister who resigned before his term of office expired. Zhou Yongsheng said that there were three main reasons for the prime ministers Resignation: first, his popularity among the Japanese people was too low, and he was criticized by the public and the media, so he had to resign; second, there was a huge scandal during his term of office; third, he suffered from a serious illness during his term and was unable to perform his first ministers duties.

What is the impact of Abes resignation on the epidemic situation?

As of August 27, there were 859 new crown cases in Japan, with 65763 confirmed cases, 11 new deaths and 1241 deaths.

Chen Yang, a visiting researcher at the Japan Research Center of Liaoning University, said that at the stage of rapid spread of the epidemic in Japan, Abes government took relatively slow measures, resulting in the epidemic not being effectively contained.

Chen Yang said that Abes resignation will have a certain impact on the prevention and control of the new crown epidemic in Japan, mainly due to whether the successor will effectively implement the current epidemic prevention policy. Abe was criticized for introducing policies to stimulate the economy in July. It is still unclear what kind of anti epidemic measures will be taken by the next prime minister and whether the measures of border epidemic prevention and economic revitalization will be effectively adjusted. These are problems to be observed.

What is the impact of Abes resignation on Japans foreign policy? Wang Xinsheng, a professor in the History Department of Peking University and President of the Chinese Society for the history of Sino Japanese relations, said that Abe has made a lot of efforts in foreign affairs and is also the Japanese leader who has visited other countries the most.

Wang Xinsheng believes that no matter who the successor is, Japans foreign policy will not be greatly changed, and only some adjustments can be made on the basis of the original foreign policy. After that, Japan will still adhere to the diplomatic principle of US Japan alliance and pay attention to international relations with neighboring countries.

Who is most likely to become the new prime minister?

Abe does not set up a temporary minister, and Ishida and others are expected to be elected

Wang Xinsheng said that as current ministers, Taro Aso and Kan Yiwei are more likely to become temporary agents, but Abe made it clear in a news conference on August 28 that he would not set up a temporary acting prime minister.

The advantages of Koizumi, Kato, Nishimura, Yoko Noda and bakiko Koichi are very limited, so they are less likely to be elected.

Ishida

After Abe announced his resignation, former Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Ishida said he was ready to become Abes successor. According to Japanese media reports, in an interview with the media that day, Ishida hoped to participate in the next election of the LDP president, and said Abe had called to contact him about his resignation.
