  • Unlike the Cabinet Secretary, who is the Secretary of State, the Deputy Secretary-General of the Cabinet does not apply the provisions of Article 71 of the Constitution of Japan and is a governmental office that does not automatically lose the job at the same time as the appointment of the new Prime Minister, At the new Prime Minister's Cabinet, he asked himself to resign and vacated his seat for succession. For this reason, there are cases in which the new Vice-Minister is appointed without a request for resignation (formally vacant seats), and cases in which he/she immediately resigns without appointed the new Deputy Secretary (vacant seats). In the latter case, The deputy secretary office will be completely vacant for several hours to several days until the appointment of a successor (although the deputy secretary and deputy secretary act as a de facto representative, there is no official "deputy secretary-general representative"). ..
