Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda unveiled a new Cabinet lineup on Monday, the third reshuffle since he assumed office a year ago.

Noda announced at a news conference ten appointees, including eight new figures to his government, in a bid to bolster sagging public support for his cabinet.

Ex-foreign minister Seiji Maehara and ex-chief of Diet affairs of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan Koriki Jojima were named as national policy minister and finance minister, respectively.
