Japan’s new Prime Minister Fumio Kishida dissolved the lower house of parliament on Thursday, paving the way for the October 31 national election.

Kishida said that he was seeking public authorization for his policy after he was elected by the parliament as prime minister to replace Yoshihide Suga only 10 days ago.

The more powerful Speaker of the House of Commons Tadomo Oshima announced its dissolution in the plenary meeting.

After the announcement, all 465 members of the House of Commons stood up and left with three shouts of “Hurrah”. They have now lost their seats, and the official campaign for the new House of Commons will begin on Tuesday.

The last election for the House of Commons was held in 2017 under the leadership of former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

His successor, Yoshihide Suga, served as prime minister for only one year. His hard-line response to the coronavirus and his insistence on hosting the Tokyo Olympics despite increasing cases of angering the public have weakened the support of his government.

Kishida, who is responsible for gaining support for the ruling party, promised to pursue a politics of “trust and compassion.”

In his first policy speech last Friday, he promised to strengthen the country’s response to the coronavirus pandemic to prevent another recovery and revitalize its hard-hit economy, while strengthening defenses against threats from China and North Korea.
