  Prime Minister of Japan - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Prime Minister is the head of the Cabinet and appoints and dismisses the Ministers of State.
The Prime Minister must resign if the House of Representatives adopts a motion of no confidence or defeats a vote of confidence, unless the House of Representatives is dissolved within ten days.
Theoretically, the Prime Minister is very powerful, with a role most similar to the German chancellor and even greater because of Japan's unitary form of government.
