TOKYO, Aug. 3 (Xinhua) -- Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, amid growing public discontent and mistrust that saw his support rate plummet to historic lows, made a cabinet reshuffle Thursday in a bid to recover confidence.
Abe picked a line up of veterans to serve in his new cabinet in a bid to fight shy of further controversies O.J. Mayo Bucks Jersey , which arose from a slew of scandals and gaffes involving himself and his ministers.
The prime minister's cabinet reshuffle Thursday was as much about damage control in the public's eyes as it was about picking the right lineup to see that solid policy visions are brought through to fruition.
He is also appeasing the ruling Liberal Democratic Party's party's inner factions, political watchers here said.
Abe's hand had been forced to some extent and his choices, both in terms of some of his new cabinet picks and executive party lineup choices, were to quash increased disquiet from within the LDP's factions.
If left unchecked, the dissatisfaction within the LDP could further wreak havoc on Abe and his somewhat delicate administration, analysts say.
Former defense minister Tomomi Inada Mirza Teletovic Bucks Jersey , a protege of Abe's who has being embroiled in multiple scandals, would have been ousted in the reshuffle had she not resigned last week, political experts have concurred.
"I'm not surprised to see Itsunori Onodera handed the defense minister's portfolio as he is a known entity to Abe as he will be serving in this capacity for a second time. At a time when Japan is dealing with regional geopolitical situations, the public has been incensed that Inada wasn't booted out earlier," political commentator and Shizuoka-based author Philip McNeil told Xinhua.
In the public's eyes, the defense ministry is now Michael Beasley Bucks Jersey , ostensibly, in a "solid" pair of hands, those of an experienced minister who has a proven track record, said McNeil.
"Onodera will now be charged with shoring up the ministry and making sure the coverup scandal will remain a thing of the past," McNeil said.
"You simply can't have a scandal-tainted defense ministry as the public has hit the panic button. Abe seems to have cleaned house here to an extent," he added.
More house cleaning had to take place at the education ministry Matthew Dellavedova Bucks Jersey , experts also said, as the influence-peddling scandal needs to be resolved.
The scandal involved Kake Educational Institution, run by a close friend of Abe's, being picked to open a new school in a special deregulated zone.
Considering the prime minister himself is implicated in the Kake scandal, political watchers said it came as no surprise that Yoshimasa Hayashi will be taking over as education minister, as he's another veteran who previously served in numerous cabinet positions including as defense minister and farm minister.
Those who have come under close scrutiny over the Kake ordeal were also removed from the spotlight Khris Middleton Bucks Jersey , McNeil said.
Again, this is an example of Abe bringing in veterans who purportedly run tight ships to rek.
