Japan's Abe - wants to name new trade, justice ministers on Monday

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said he wants to name replacements for the trade and justice ministers on Monday after they resigned earlier in the day.

Abe said he accepted Trade Minister Yuko Obuchi and Justice Minister Midori Matsushima’s resignations over questionable political spending and alleged violation of the election law, respectively.
