Japan’s Suga to join race to succeed PM Abe: Kyodo

first_imgAbe’s announcement on Friday, citing a worsening of a chronic illness, set the stage for a leadership election within his Liberal Democratic Party (LDP). The LDP president is virtually assured of being prime minister because of the party’s majority in the lower house of parliament.Suga decided to join the LDP race judging that he should play a leading role given expectations for his ability to manage crises, such as the COVID-19 pandemic and Japan’s deepest postwar economic dive, Kyodo said, citing an unnamed source.Calls to Suga’s parliamentary office seeking comment on Sunday went unanswered.A self-made politician in a country of political dynasties, Suga was chosen by Abe in 2012 for the pivotal role of chief cabinet secretary, acting as top government spokesman, coordinating policies and riding herd on bureaucrats.Suga would join such candidates as former foreign minister Fumio Kishida and former defence minister Shigeru Ishiba.Topics : Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga will join the race to succeed his boss Shinzo Abe as prime minister, Kyodo news agency reported on Sunday, as the competition heats up to succeed Japan’s longest-serving leader.Suga, a longtime lieutenant of Abe’s in a key supporting role, has denied interest in the top job but attracted attention with a series of interviews, to Reuters and other news organizations, in the days before Abe’s abrupt resignation for health reasons.A Suga government would extend the fiscal and monetary stimulus that defined Abe’s nearly eight years in office.last_img read more

Almost 300 Rohingya refugees arrive in Indonesia’s Aceh province

first_imgTopics : Almost 300 Rohingya refugees believed to have been at sea for six months landed in Indonesia’s Aceh province early on Monday, Indonesian authorities said.Acehnese police said a wooden boat carrying the Rohingya was spotted by local fishermen several kilometers off the coast of Lhokseumawe, before landing at Ujung Blang Beach just after midnight“There are 297 Rohingya according to the latest data, among them 181 women and 14 children,” Iptu Irwansya, a local police chief, told reporters. Junaidi Yahya, head of the Red Cross in Lhokseumawe, said the group was currently being held in a temporary location.“We hope they can be moved to the evacuation center today, but their health, especially related to COVID-19, is our main concern,” said Yahya.Among the group was one sick 13-year-old who police said was taken to hospital in an ambulance.Images of the Rohingya arrivals show lines of women in masks carrying their possessions in plastic bags, and men huddled on the floor of a thatched roof shelter.center_img Monday’s arrival follows the arrival of another vessel in late June when Acehnese fishermen rescued more than 100 Rohingya refugees, including 79 women and children, after Indonesian authorities had initially threatened to push them back.Fleeing persecution in Myanmar and refugee camps in Bangladesh, the Rohingya have for years boarded boats in an attempt to seek refuge in other Southeast Asian nations.Chris Lewa, director of the Arakan Project, a non-profit group focusing on the Rohingya crisis, said the passengers that arrived in Aceh on Monday had set sail from southern Bangladesh at the end of March or early April, bound for Malaysia.But both Malaysian and Thai authorities pushed them back, she said, as borders tightened due to coronavirus pandemic.Smugglers split the passengers into several boats, some of which managed to land in Malaysia and Indonesia in June, but several hundred remained at sea until Sunday night.The smugglers called their families to demand payments in the weeks before they were taken to shore, she said.“The smugglers seemed to not want to try to disembark them because not everyone had paid … They were basically keeping them hostage on the boat,” she said. last_img read more
