Taro Kono, Sanae Takaichi neck and neck in race for Japanese PM
Incumbent Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga has indicated he would support Minister for Vaccination Taro Kono, 58, while former PM Shinzo supports former Internal Affairs Minister Sanae Takaichi, 60, who could be the country's first female PM. She has managed the needed 20 LDP members' backing.

TOKYO, Sept 5: As the political atmosphere heated up following his announcement on Friday that he is quitiing, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga indicated on Saturday that he would support Minister for Vaccination Taro Kono, 58, to succeed him if he is seeking the post, it was reported.

The Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) is scheduled to meet on September 29 to elect a new leader. However, the LDP leader needs to win majority support in parliament also to become the Prime Minister.

Former Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida, 64, and several other candidates are also planning to stake their claim. Shinzo Abe, who resigned last year on health ground, after a record eight years in office, had then supported Suga, who became the Prime Minister.

Abe now supports former Internal Affairs Minister Sanae Takaichi, 60, who could be the country's first female Prime Minister. She has managed 20 LDP members' backing needed to run for the party presidency.

A general election is due later this year.
