Japan’s internal affairs minister resigned on Sunday over a series of campaign finance scandals, becoming the third member of Prime Minister Fumio Kishida’s cabinet to step down in less than a month.


Minoru Terada quit over allegations of mismanagement of political funds. He had acknowledged to parliament that his local campaign group had even listed a dead person as its treasurer in annual financial statements.


Other accusations published by the weekly Shukan Bunshun magazine included illegal payments to staff during his reelection campaign last year.
