TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga and Finance Minister Taro Aso will retain their posts in a cabinet reshuffle expected in October, the Nikkei newspaper reported on Thursday.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who won a ruling party leadership vote on Thursday, said he would reshuffle his cabinet after returning from a trip to the United States to attend a U.N. General Assembly meeting.
