JAPAN - A coalition project aborted

On 19 March, Prime Minister Naoto Kan was named the leader of the main opposition party (Liberal Democratic Party, LDP), Sadakazu Tanizaki, asking him to enter a coalition government. This request was immediately rejected. "Naoto Kan believes that a union at the top is essential to address the crisis facing the country right now.

He envisioned the creation of three posts of minister as reinforcement of his cabinet," reports the Mainichi Shimbun.
