by Naoki Takiguchi

Results and Implications

The current ruling coalition of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and Komeito won the 2021 general election. Fumio Kishida took over the Prime Ministership from Yoshide Suga only weeks before and has already pledged many reforms for the new government and Diet to put in action. This includes a ‘new capitalism’, revised distribution policy, and economic security.
