Longtime Abe government spokesman Yoshihide Suga set to become Japan's next prime minister
Abe last month abruptly announced his resignation, citing chronic health issues. Suga is expected to stay as prime minister until the September 2021 elections. Unlike Abe, who is a member of a Japanese political dynasty, Suga hails from rural northern Japan, where his father worked as a strawberry farmer and his mother as a schoolteacher.
