Prime Minister Fumio Kishida appears unfazed by growing demands from the opposition camp and even some ruling party lawmakers to sack education minister Masahito Moriyama over his past connection with the Unification Church.

Moriyama acknowledged signing an effective policy agreement with a group affiliated with the Unification Church before the 2021 Lower House election.

The document, titled “Confirmation of Recommendations,” listed policies pushed by the Unification Church, now formally called the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification.

At the Lower House Budget Committee session on Feb. 7, Chinami Nishimura of the main opposition Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan asked Moriyama if he had received support from the church-affiliated organization for the 2021 election.

The education minister had initially said he didn’t remember.

“Has your memory somewhat returned now?” Nishimura asked.

“I faintly recall now,” Moriyama responded.
