Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will reshuffle his cabinet and governing party executives on Tuesday.
He appears set to retain at least 4 more ministers from his current Cabinet.
They are Foreign Minister Taro Kono, Economy, Trade and Industry Minister Hiroshige Seko, Economic Revitalization Minister Toshimitsu Motegi, and Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism Minister Keiichi Ishii. Ishii is a member of the Liberal Democratic Party's junior coalition partner Komeito.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will reshuffle his Cabinet and key posts in the main governing Liberal Democratic Party as early as October 1st. He appears set to retain Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Taro Aso and Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga.
Aso and Suga have been with the prime minister since the start of his second Cabinet.
Japan's Cabinet has approved basic economic and fiscal policies that include measures to reconstruct state finances and address labor shortages.
The guidelines endorsed on Friday put off the goal for achieving a primary balance surplus by 5 years to fiscal 2025. A surplus means that the government can finance policy-related expenditure without incurring new debt.
