All networks reported that PM Abe has decided to tap LDP General Council Chairman Nikai as LDP secretary general, with TBS saying that the premier chose Nikai in the hope of maintaining stability within the party since Nikai is capable of controlling the party and has strong connections with Komeito. Nikai told reporters this morning that he has accepted the offer. TBS said that in addition to Deputy PM Aso and Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga, PM Abe is likely to keep LDP Vice President Komura and FM Kishida in their current posts. The network also said LDP election campaign committee chairman Motegi and LDP policy research chief Inada are likely to be appointed to important cabinet posts.
