Kishida administration to mark one year in office amid mounting challenges

Quick Summary

The prime minister's approval ratings have plummeted over issues related to the controversial state funeral and LDP lawmakers' ties to the Unification Church.

Prime Minister Fumio Kishida is set to mark one year on Tuesday since taking office, but his administration is now facing mounting challenges.

Kishida, who became prime minister and launched his administration on Oct.4, 2021, had enjoyed a certain level of public support, and his ruling Liberal Democratic Party's victory in July's election for the House of Councilors, the upper chamber of the Diet, Japan's parliament, was seen to have paved the way for a long administration for the prime minister.
