Japan's Prime Minister Fumio Kishida will be re-appointed during the special session of the Diet today. All ministers are expected to keep their portfolios, while former Education Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi is set to become Foreign Minister. Kishida has doubled as Foreign Minister since the recent resignation of Toshimitsu Motegi, who took the role of ruling Liberal Democratic Party Secretary General.

  • Kishida is also expected to tap former Defence Minister and China critic Gen Nakatani as his special advisor on human rights issues.
  • The special parliamentary session will last for three days, with Prime Minister Kishida set to unveil the details of the government's planned Covid-19 measures on Friday.
