Fumio Kishida, president of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, on Oct. 4 became the 100th prime minister of Japan. He will immediately face voters in a lower house election on Oct. 31. We hope he will redouble the government's efforts to address the COVID-19 crisis and lay out a clear path to overcome it.
