TOKYO: Japan’s vaccine minister KONO Taro said he has informed Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga of his intention to run in the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) leadership race to replace Suga, local media reported on Friday.

Suga announced last week he would not run for the LDP leadership election, paving the way for a new LDP leader and prime minister to succeed him.

Votes for the leadership race will be counted on Sept. 27, and a general election must take place later this year.
