Japan’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has decided to remove his son from office for holding private ceremony at official residence.
Japanese Prime Minister’s son hosted a private ceremony at the Prime Minister’s House last year in which he invited his relatives.
According to media reports, Japanese PM’s son Shutaro, who worked as executive secretary to the Japanese Prime Minister, and Fumio himself faced public criticism for holding a private ceremony in the official residence, after which the Prime Minister decided to remove his son from the government post.
Talking to the media, the Prime Minister said that he would remove his son from the post of his Executive Secretary as organizing such events at the official residence was irresponsible behavior, so the decision was taken due to necessary accountability.
According to media reports, photos of Fumio Kishida’s son holding a private ceremony at a government residence in December last year were published by a magazine.
