The resignation of the whole Japanese cabinet was reported by Kyodo.

The entire Japanese government has resigned, according to Kyodo News Agency.

The new reshuffle of the administration under Prime Minister Fumio Kishida is anticipated to be made public soon, the agency says.

The reorganization was originally scheduled for early September, but Prime Minister Kishida chose to carry it now in order to further the economic idea of "new capitalism", take action in response to rising food and energy prices, and to prepare for the Parliamentary session.
