After that, Suga will unveil the "gengo", or new era name, and explain how the government reached the decision.

"The prime minister will convey the meaning of the new gengo and his message directly to the public," Suga said.The announcement will be made exactly a month before the new era begins on May 1, when Crown Prince Naruhito is expected to accede to the throne after his father Emperor Akihito formally abdicates on April 30. Suga told reporters, the government will not disclose the names of the scholars the government has commissioned to propose era name candidates even after the new name is announced.
