Being the PM is just a token accolade, all decisions are made by the old guard in cohoots with J-inc. it’s not like people have much of a say, and it’s not as if the goal of actually improving people’s lives is a concern. They would rather burn the house down then let it be improved/changed.

a "bold injection" of government funds

Boldly spending other people’s money, right before an election, surprise surprise.

Japan is the gold medalist in public debt, and they are trying to keep it that way.

Elections in Japan don't have any practical meaning though. They just shuffle around the same old blokes and pick someone whose time it is to be the PM.

Suga is trying to avoid a possibly embarrassing leadership race before the election.

Nikai stepping down is a complete red herring. He will still pull the same strings as before, but out of sight this time.

Of course. You didn't really think Japan was a democracy did you?? The LDP has been in power longer than most dictatorships. You don't get that in a democracy

This Suga guy sure is putting a lot of time and effort into trying to secure victory for himself.

I am certain that the drive and determination he is showing bodes well for any future COVID endeavors!

Let's elect him instead of whomever is currently in charge, because they seem to be doing absolutely nothing.

It’s just so sad..people deserve much much better.
