TOKYO, April 22 (Bernama-Sputnik) -- The level of distrust in the Japanese government headed by Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has dropped to 74 per cent among Japanese nationals, while the cabinet's rating rose slightly to 22 per cent, reported Sputnik.

Kishida's foreign policy activities, including a recent state visit to the United States, were viewed positively by 37 per cent of respondents, negatively by 41 per cent and difficult to answer by 22 per cent, the poll conducted by Japanese newspaper Mainichi Shimbun showed on Monday.

Meanwhile, 62 per cent of those sampled advocated a change of power in Japan's next elections to the parliament's lower house, 24 per cent of the respondents supported the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) retaining power, and 13 per cent were undecided, the poll said.

The LDP's support now stands at 20 per cent and the Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan is backed by 15 per cent, while there are 28 per cent of those who do not support any party, the survey found.

Earlier in April, Kishida paid an official state visit to Washington and held meetings with US President Joe Biden and other US officials on different topics, including cooperation, security and space.

The survey was conducted from April 20-21 by random computer sampling over the telephone among 1,032 Japanese nationals.
