The personnel reshuffle of the Liberal Democratic Party’s leadership, which took place along with a cabinet shakeup, was confirmed on Oct. 1. Posts in the party’s key offices, which include the office of Secretary-General and the General Council, the party’s highest decision-making organ, were equally divided among the Hosoda faction, which Prime Minister Abe hails from, the Aso faction and the Nikai faction. The lineup highlights Prime Minister Abe’s attempt to keep the government stable by treating the key factions equally. (Abridged)
