Say Hello to Prime Minister Fukuda

Japanese Prime Minister Fukuda

If you have been keeping up on the follies and foibles of the Japanese government, you will be glad to know that moderate lawmaker Yasuo Fukuda has taken the job of Prime Minister of Japan.

The long-ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) chose 71-year-old Fukuda as its leader to revive party fortunes after a disastrous year of scandals and election defeat under Shinzo Abe, who resigned abruptly on September 12.

Hopefully this will mark a point of stability in the Japanese government.

Change is good.
