As a puppet Suga should first consult Nikai over it.

That is a stupid and most inappropriate question if not intentional expecting a slip of tongue of Suga. From the day a prime minister says he will not run again, he will be a dead wood prime minister and invites a lot of political confusions.

Absolutely!

He's already dead-wood, and has been since day one! He's got so many people behind him pulling all the strings I am surprised he's actually managed to stay this long!

His career is over. His Goto campaign and more so the failure to cancel it will be responsible for thousands of deaths and even worse is the failure to approve the vaccines, the unacceptable delay in planning the inoculation campaign and the practical implementation of it

But what he wouldn’t dodge is ....another plate of STEAK!

He is like Neo in Matrix!

Unfortunately the next guy will be even worse. I fear that if the Olympics are really canceled then the government will really tighten the border and make it hard for non-Japanese to live or visit here. Mark my words.

@ Reckless What utter nonsense!!

If the vaccine is rolled out and COVID19 is brought under control the borders will open ( especially to the rich Chinese tourists) and the foreign money( sorry people) will be once again welcome here again!

Best thing he can do is bow out gracefully, blame everything on Unforseen circumstances , and tell the world how regrettable it has been playing Prime minister.

And many thought Trump was bad.....this priminister not doing any better in my opinion or ever worse

He didn't really run this time - his name was mooted, and then the LDP machinery did the rest. He was way down the list of potential candidates, and settled on as a compromise because he doesn't have his own faction - thus hampering all of the more ambitious candidates' chances.

SUGA just do the Dirty Job for ABE

Nikai will be next, Suga will get a bonus for the successful Olympics.
