Fumio Kishida

Fumio Kishida (born 29 July 1957) is a Japanese politician serving as Prime Minister of Japan since 4 October 2021. He has also been the president of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) since 29 September 2021. A member of the House of Representatives, he previously served as Minister for Foreign Affairs from 2012 to 2017 and as acting Minister of Defense in 2017.

As with most Japanese prime ministers, Kishida comes from a family of politicians. Hereditary politics is common in Japan. The majority of prime ministers in the post-war era have come from a political dynasty and Kishida is no exception. Both his grandfather Masaki and father Fumitake were both lower house members. Fumio eventually followed in their paths after first working for the now defunct Long-Term Credit Bank of Japan. His political career began in 1987 as a secretary to his father who was a lawmaker of the lower house. Six years later, he was elected to the House of Representatives in his domicile of Hiroshima.

He is not particularly popular with the public, but now most popular leader!

According to various opinion polls taken prior to the election, Taro Kono was the people’s choice to be PM. In a survey by the Mainichi Shimbun, 45 percent of respondents felt he was the best man for the job. Kishida was well back with just 18 percent. The Hiroshima-native doesn’t have as strong a connection with the public as Kono who regularly interacts with followers on Twitter. While campaigning for last year’s leadership election, Kishida thought he’d post a nice family picture on the same platform. Showing his wife serving him dinner in an apron, the photo was widely mocked and described as “anachronistic.”
