Kishida Cabinet Approval Rises to 51.7 Pct: Jiji Poll

Kishida Cabinet Approval Rises to 51.7 Pct: Jiji Poll

   Tokyo, Jan. 14 (Jiji Press)--The public approval rate for Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida's cabinet grew 6.8 percentage points from the previous month to 51.7 pct in January, a Jiji Press opinion survey showed Friday.
   The approval rate exceeded 50 pct for the first time since the launch of his administration in October last year.
   The disapproval rate fell 5.3 points to 18.7 pct. The proportion of people who said neither or that they do not know came to 29.6 pct, down 1.5 points, according to the survey, conducted for four days through Monday.
   During the survey period, new cases of the omicron coronavirus variant began to soar in Japan.
   But public support for the Kishida cabinet increased apparently thanks to its novel coronavirus measures. In addition, Kishida's stance of providing careful explanations to the public is likely to have given a better impression than the attitudes of his two immediate predecessors, Shinzo Abe and Yoshihide Suga.
