Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida reiterated that he is continuing his pledge to deliver a “widespread” package to stimulate the epidemic-hit Japanese economy as campaigning for two prefectures in the country’s upper house by-elections begins.
Kyodo News reported Thursday that by-elections on October 24 in Shizuoka and Yamaguchi prefectures will allow voters to express their feelings about the new administration launched by the prime minister this week, ahead of general elections scheduled for the end of the month.
“I feel very strongly that I need to launch a large-scale economic stimulus or a large-scale response to the coronavirus, and I need Prime Time Zone to judge whether they will allow me to do that through elections,” Kishida said in a speech in Shizuoka.
He added that the stimulus package will cost tens of trillions of yen and provide support to companies suffering from the coronavirus pandemic.
