Suga's approval rating remains low at 43%: Nikkei poll

90% of respondents say COVID-19 state of emergency should be extended

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga's support rating has plummeted from 74% -- one of the highest in history -- when he took office in September last year.

TOKYO -- Public support for Suga's cabinet remains low as the government struggles to handle the country's COVID-19 situation.

The approval rating of Suga's cabinet was 43% in a weekend Nikkei/TV Tokyo opinion poll. While support was one percentage point higher than the previous poll in December, disapproval increased 2 points to 50% -- the second straight month it has exceeded approval.
