Tokyo, Sept 16: Japan's parliament on Wednesday elected Yoshihide Suga prime minister, with the former chief cabinet secretary expected to stick closely to policies championed by Shinzo Abe during his record-breaking tenure.

"According to the results, our house has decided to name Yoshihide Suga prime minister," lower house speaker Tadamori Oshima told parliament after the votes were counted.

Suga, 71, won an easy victory, taking 314 votes of 462 valid ballots cast in the lower house of parliament, where his ruling Liberal Democratic Party holds a commanding majority with its coalition partner.

He bowed deeply as lawmakers applauded following the announcement, but made no immediate comment.

He is expected to announce his cabinet later Wednesday, with local media reporting he will retain a number of ministers from Abe's government.

Suga has said he will prioritise keeping coronavirus infections under control and kickstarting Japan's economy, and has promised to continue Abe's key policy programmes.

Mysuru, Oct 27: Karnataka's Cooperation Minister S T Somashekar on Tuesday had a foot-in-mouth moment as he accidentally called Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa a "villain" while addressing media persons.

However, he quickly apologised for the slip of his tongue and said, “What I meant to say is that those who cause problems to the government are villains. I meant to say that 'the CM is a hero'."

His slip of the tongue was in response to a question by media persons. “Former CM Kumaraswamy says ex-CM Siddaramaiah is a villain. Siddaramaiah says he is not a villain, but a hero. Is Siddaramaiah a hero or a villain?”

To this, he replied, “Neither of them is villain, Yediyurappa is the villain”.
