MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The approval rating of the government of Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida updated the latest anti-record and dropped to 24%, a poll conducted by Japanese media showed on Sunday.
On November 5, a poll conducted by the Kyodo news agency showed that only 28.3% of respondents support Kishida's government.
The disapproval rate reached 62%, the newspaper said, adding that dissatisfaction with the government's economic measures and the successive resignations of leading politicians accelerated the decline in ratings.
