NHK reported this morning that LDP Secretary General Nikai became the longest serving secretary general of the LDP today, overtaking Kakuei Tanaka’s record of 1,497 days in the position. The network said attention will be focused on whether Nikai will remain in his post when the LDP executive lineup is reshuffled by Abe’s successor on Sept. 14. Chief Cabinet Secretary Suga reportedly told the press on Monday: “It is essential for the government and the ruling parties to work closely in order to implement policies. The secretary general is very reliable as he has the ability to unite the party.”
