Fumio Kishida came running back to his room on the 12th floor of the House of Representatives.
“I thought I was going to be late. I thought I was going to be late, but I’m glad I made it.
However, his appearance, with his suit jacket buttoned up and his blue tie tightly fastened, is flawless. His neat impression is his weapon.
“As a politician, he is not flashy, and his words are said to be uninteresting and thin. I can’t help it, because this is who I am. Kishida’s political style is to be honest and sincere, not to try to do anything unusual, so I won’t try to say anything interesting or make a joke out of it. If I change this style, I won’t be Fumio Kishida anymore.
At the press conference announcing his candidacy for the presidency, Mr. Kishida showed off his “New Kishida” style without regret, and expectations were high. At the press conference announcing his candidacy for the presidency, Kishida showed off his “New Kishida” style without regret, and expectations were high. Kishida’s watchdogs whispered, “Kishida may be finished.
“He’s lost the will to fight.
Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga lost his will to fight and left the front line. He lost the mayoral election in Yokohama. In anticipation of the forthcoming general election, the Kanagawa Prefectural Federation announced that it would not support Kan in the presidential election.
Ironically, the effect of the Kan coronary vaccine has now become apparent, and the number of newly infected people in Tokyo has dropped to around 2,000. Of course, we cannot rest assured. The positive test rate is still around 80%. Concerns about the reemergence of infection cannot be dispelled. But….
“I think that the Kan cabinet’s measures against coronary heart disease were not too far off. However, I don’t think they were able to listen to the voice of the people. But I don’t think they listened to the people’s voices, and as a result, they didn’t communicate well.
As he spoke, Kishida opened one of his “Voice of the People” notebooks that he had been writing in for the past ten years.
As he spoke, Kishida opened one of the notebooks he had been writing in for the past ten years, “I listened to the voices of restaurant owners who were forced to close their restaurants, which had been in business for three generations, as well as the real voices of people in various positions. I listened to the voices of restaurant owners who had to close down their restaurants that had been in business for three generations, as well as the voices of people in various positions. The Lehman shock in 2006 caused a lot of damage to large corporations, men, finance, and manufacturing. This time, the new corona has hit non-regular workers, women, service providers and sole proprietors, causing an immeasurably wider range of people to suffer. We want to present a lot of supportive measures that are easy to use as well as the scale of the countermeasure costs.”
How do we deal with a Japan where inequality has widened to such an extent that one in seven children live in poverty? He says he is preparing economic policies to achieve this. Then there is education and respect for learning.
Conveying the value of learning
“Education is the foundation of the nation. Education is the foundation of the country. 10 trillion yen “Education is the foundation of the nation. We must not take learning lightly.
There was a young man who yearned for the school song and wasted no time in getting accepted to the school of his choice, but after entering the school, he had not been able to sing the school song even once. He said, “Mr. Kishida, please listen to me.
At that moment, Kishida’s voice, which had been speaking so eloquently about his own theory, paused for a moment. Perhaps he was recalling his past experience of failing to pass the entrance exam to Tokyo University three times.
It was during a visit to Russia when he was Minister of Foreign Affairs. There is an anecdote that he surprised the Russians at a working dinner by talking to Foreign Minister Lavrov over a large glass of vodka. It seems that he is not only neat and tidy, but also frustrated and thick-skinned.
-Will the Kishida administration be able to achieve what the Abe and Kan administrations lost and failed to do in their nine years in power?
“I want Kishida to take charge of Japan! I’ll get it done.”
It is up to Kishida to decide whether he will break out of the “politician with a good impression” mold and become a rare “wolf boy” politician or a man of action. If Kishida, a politician who sells his honesty, raises the white flag at the policy implementation stage, he will have to prepare for his death as a politician.
