Tokyo - Japan's PM Says Considers To Resign Over Nuclear Crisis
Tokyo - Japan’s Prime Minister Naoto Kan says he will consider resigning once Japan’s efforts to recover from its earthquake and tsunami disaster take firm hold.
Kan told members of his party Thursday that he felt responsible for carrying through with leading the recovery. He made the comments ahead of a no-confidence vote in parliament.
Kan, who became prime minister just a year ago, has been criticized for delays in construction of temporary housing for evacuees, lack of transparency about evacuation information, and a perceived lack of leadership.
On Wednesday, the largest opposition group, the Liberal Democratic Party, submitted the no-confidence motion along with two smaller opposition groups.
