Japan's Abe To Co-opt Rival, Draft More Women In Cabinet Reshuffle

by Wochit 0:51 mins

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is expected to co-opt a rival and draft more women to spruce up his image while keeping key ministers when he reshuffles his cabinet on Wednesday, a rejig dictated more by political dynamics than policy matters. Abe has not revamped his cabinet since returning to office in December 2012, a record for a post-World War Two premier. That means dozens of veterans in his male-dominated Liberal Democratic Party are eager to be tapped for a post. The risks, however, are that those left out could become more vocal in criticizing Abe if his administration hits a rough patch, or that novice new ministers might commit gaffes.
