Japanese Finance Minister Taro Aso and Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga will likely retain their posts at a cabinet reshuffle in September.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has said he plans to reshuffle his cabinet next month, and that he will emphasize “stability” and “consistency” in the new line-up, signaling that he will keep key positions unchanged.

Aso and Suga have both served their current positions since Abe took power in a landslide election victory in late 2012.
