The former prime minister said he was proud of his achievements during his nearly eight years in power.

Suga won the seat as the new Prime minister through Japan’s lower house votes, receiving 314 votes out of 426.

Besides his cabinet, soon Japan’s emperor will ceremonially endorse him at the Imperial Palace- Japan.
