Japan PM Kishida reshuffles Cabinet following drop in approval ratings, ties to controversial church Updated: 2022-08-11 09:04:16 KST

Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has reshuffled his Cabinet amid falling approval ratings and ties to the Unification Church.
A new Cabinet was introduced on Wednesday, replacing 14 of the 20 members.
This follows polling showing that the previous Cabinet's approval rating had dropped as low as 46-percent.
It also comes as Kishida attempts to distance his administration from the controversial Unification Church.
Several of the previous Cabinet members had ties to the church, which had been connected to fraudulent activities.
This reshuffle is the second in only 10 months since Kishida was sworn in.
Commenting on the move, the PM said all new Cabinet members have agreed to have any links to the church reviewed and will help victims of fraudulent religious organizations.
