The appointment of government officials when a new leader takes office is commonly seen as a gauge of policies to come under the new administration.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe brought onboard right-wing politicians in a Cabinet reshuffle in August. This led to speculation about Abe's desire for long-term governance. Diversity has been a central point of interest for other leaders, demonstrated by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and recently elected French President Emmanuel Macron.
