Following Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s abrupt decision to resign, Japan’s ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) will be voting on its next leader, determining who will become the new prime minister of Japan. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga, Prime Minister Abe’s right-hand man, has emerged as the front-runner in the LDP leadership race. He is widely expected to win the leadership election, locking in support from most of the party’s factions. How long will the next prime minister stay in office? Will Abenomics continue under a new name? How will Japanese politics evolve in the post-Abe era? In this webinar, two leading experts offer their insights into the current landscape of Japanese politics, the new administration, and implications for U.S.-Japan relations.
