Tatsuo Hirano will replace Ryu Matsumoto

Dow Jones reported that Tatsuo Hirano would replace Ryu Matsumoto as reconstruction minister.

Hirano was a former bureaucrat in the farm ministry. He joined the Diet in 2001 as a member of the Liberal Party. Ozawa led the party at that time.

“While he is a member of the Ozawa camp within the DPJ, there is said to be some distance between the two, as they do not see eye-to-eye on certain policies — including the need for financial reconstruction,” said the Japan Times.

This must have made my government happy.
