Former Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida became the new prime minister of Japan. In the second round, when the struggle was between him and Taro Kono, Kishido received 257 votes, his opponent - 170. In the first round, none of the candidates received the required number of votes.

As the RBC citing the Kyodo agency, initially four candidates ran for the post of head of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party: in addition to Kishida and Kono, the candidates were Deputy Secretary General of the party Seiko Noda and ex-Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications Sanae Takaichi.

This is the second attempt by Kishida to lead the party, a year ago he gave up the post to Yoshihide Suga. Suga announced in early September that he had decided to resign in order to devote his strength to the fight against coronavirus in Japan. His term as prime minister expires in September.
