Who would you like to see become the next prime minister after Fumio Kishida (whenever that happens)?

It is tempting to say 'anyone not LDP' but why not a leftist populist leader like from the Reiwa or JCP ?

They have actual substantial policy proposals that would benefit the people.

And if there is a swamp to be drained it is the LDP.

Doesn't matter.

Doesn't matter.

exactly.

Nakatani Gen san would be a good strategical choice I think, because of intellectual appearance, a broader range of views than usual and also he is not in focus of bigger scandals.

most of us have no right to vote here so why bother to ask?

whoever.i dont mind at all.

Excellent point

It’s only a question that can be answered by the voters.

It would be great to break the mold/mould and see a female prime minister.

Taro Aso should give it another go. He was one of the best PMs IMO and he has a connection with Trump, who looks set to win a second term in November.

Yoshiro Mori is another ex-PM who could reverse Japan's death spiral. He had the foresight to see the potential of the Internet over 20 years ago. And he really represents how the majority of Japanese really think.

Someone not trapped in the same thinking box as most of the past lot. Time for a woman who has lived and studied at a university overseas. The current empress would have been great but she got hounded into that marriage.

Normally I would agree with you but if it anyone like Tomomi Inada or Sanae Takaichi then I will still with a man.

That guy from the anti NHK party. Well, it would be fun for a while.

It will be another old crusty dinosaur for sure

I'd go with Tomoko Tamura who heads the Japanese Communist Party. BTW, JCP is Japan's oldest political party from 1922.

If not Tamura, it'd have to be Neko Hiroshi. Nyaaa!

Ichiro Suzuki

Callous question, considering that 99.9% of the Foreigners living in Japan they don't have the right to vote. However they definetly have the right to pay all of the taxes.

This question also doesn't matter, since if the locals will continue to vote for the most corrupt and incompetent LDP party, sadly nothing is going to change. The same rotation between all those dinosaurs who have no clue how to steer Japan out of its death loop it is right now...
