Just over a year after taking office, Prime Minister Fumio Kishida’s leadership style has become a study of contrasts. He was early hailed as decisive on some issues, but lately he has been heavily criticized for being slow to act to replace scandal-tainted ministers.

With three cabinet members resigning last month and another, Reconstruction Minister Kenya Akiba, embroiled in a political funding scandal that could force him to leave, there are now concerns about a further knock-on effect. On top of his low popularity ratings, Kishida now enters the end of the year with increasing concerns about his ability to exercise firm and consistent leadership over his cabinet.
