Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has decided to sack a Deputy Finance Minister, public broadcaster NHK reported today Monday.

The official last week admitted to media reports that he had been delinquent on tax payments in the past.

State Minister of Finance Kenji Kanda, who is in charge of government bonds and monetary policy, would be the third to leave a ministerial post in just two months since Kishida reshuffled his cabinet to improve tumbling public approval ratings.
