Japan’s New Prime Minister

September 30, 2021

Episode Notes:

Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party elected Fumio Kishida, a former foreign minister, as its choice for the country’s next prime minister. Because Liberal Democrats control the legislature, Kishida’s full appointment is virtually guaranteed. To discuss the latest from Japan, we’re joined today on the Warcast by Dr. Kristi Govella. Kristi is the deputy director of the Asia Program and senior fellow at The German Marshall Fund of the United States.
