The approval rate for Prime Minister Fumio Kishida's Cabinet dropped to 21.3% in November, marking a new record low for the administration that was launched in October 2021, a Jiji Press survey showed Thursday.

The figure was also the lowest for an administration led by the Liberal Democratic Party since the party's return to power in December 2012.

The support rate fell 5.0 percentage points from the previous month, while the disapproval rate rose 7.0 points to 53.3%, the highest figure to date for the Kishida Cabinet.
