Yamaguchi: No changes to coalition post-Abe
August 29 , 2020
Yamaguchi said he was shocked and disappointed that Abe was resigning, pointing to the prime minister’s term of office—which lasted for 92 months, a postwar record—was itself a major achievement in addition to the numerous policy successes enacted under his administration.
Yamaguchi underscored the fact that the Liberal Democratic Party-Komeito partnership in the coalition government would not be affected, with the two parties working closely together to resolve the many daunting challenges, led by the pandemic, that lie ahead.
Yamaguchi said that in their meeting, he told Abe that whatever unfinished policy issues he could no longer tackle, Komeito would see to it that they be addressed.
