Japan’s House of Representatives on Tuesday voted down a no-confidence motion against education minister Masahito Moriyama, who has drawn scrutiny over his links to the controversial Unification Church.

The main opposition Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan criticized Moriyama, whose ministerial portfolio covers religious affairs, in the motion for his repeated “insincere” explanations in parliament regarding his ties to the religious group.

With the failure of the motion, submitted by the opposition party on Monday, the government of Prime Minister Fumio Kishida will try to secure the passage of a draft budget for fiscal 2024 starting April by the lower house as soon as possible.
