Quote:Prime Minister Naoto Kan on Friday announced his resignation as president of the Democratic Party of Japan, effectively ending his tenure. “I resign as the (party) president effective today,” Kan told senior party officials.

“Under the severe circumstances, I feel I’ve done everything that I had to do,” he said. “Now I would like to see you choose someone respectable as a new prime minister.”

Kan’s resignation comes 5 1/2 months since the devastating March 11 quake, tsunami and ensuing nuclear disaster sorely tested his leadership, and prompted accusations he mishandled the crisis.

It's not over yet, he may take a few Xanax, polish off a couple of Micky's Bigmouths and fall on the sword.
Or move to South America and retire.

Not a surprise ,its been on the table that he should and would inevitably resign, since 2 weeks post Fukushima. Japanese leadership is not stable having had 5 PM's in 6 years, if I remember correctly.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Quote:Tsurunen, who was born Martti Turunen in Pielisjärvi in Finland, is now the chairman of the disaster committee of the Japanese Diet, or Parliament.
The task of the committee is to supervise the government’s response to crises.
