Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe plans to reshuffle his cabinet next week, with sweeping change to hit the executive power of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP).

Shinzo Abe is likely to continue a radical reform process, with his close aides expected to continue Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga, Finance Minister and Japanese Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso in their posts, the Nikkei Asian Review reported Monday.

Sources familiar with the plan said Abe, who heads the Liberal Democratic Party, plans to change the composition of the party’s executive directors on September 10 and is expected to reshuffle the cabinet on the same day or Sept. 12.

“I would like to choose a lineup that can ensure stability and meet new challenges”, Shinzo Abe said during a meeting between the Japanese government, the ruling coalition of the Liberal Democratic Party and Komeito.

Notable names include Japan’s Economy Minister Toshimitsu Motegi, who as Japan’s chief negotiator, is leading bilateral trade talks with the United States, paving the way for Abe and US President Donald Trump to sign a deal later this month.

Liberal Democratic Party chief Fumio Kishida, a former foreign minister who is seen as Abe’s potential successor, is likely to take on a new responsibility. Japanese cabinet reshuffle, some even predict that the young politician may take command from Abe in the future.
