He did not provide specific details about the lineup, as reported by Mainichi Japan.
During a press conference held after the conclusion of the Group of 20 summit in New Delhi, Kishida pledged that his government would prioritize the development of "significant economic measures" and ensure their prompt implementation under the new administration.
However, Kishida did not disclose when the government intends to convene an extraordinary parliamentary session, which is expected to be scheduled for the fall.
He also did not comment on the possibility of dissolving the House of Representatives for a snap election in the near future.
The upcoming Cabinet reshuffle is aimed at rejuvenating the image of the Kishida administration, as its approval ratings have remained lackluster, partially due to issues related to the My Number national identification system, according to political experts.
