TOKYO (Reuters) – Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso and Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga will likely retain their posts at a cabinet reshuffle in September, the Yomiuri newspaper reported on Wednesday.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has said he plans to reshuffle his cabinet next month, and that he will emphasize “stability” and “consistency” in the new line-up, signaling that he will keep key positions unchanged.
Aso and Suga have both served their current positions since Abe took power in a landslide election victory in late 2012.
