If so, new prime minister will be elected.
However, the people of Japan are watching their new leader with little enthusiasm.
Under the Japanese electoral system, the president of a ruling party, which is currently the DPJ, automatically becomes the prime minister. The president of DPJ are elected by DPJ members who themselves are elected by popular votes.
We don't know who will be new prime minister, but it will be said that the person who wrote and directed this history-making scenario behind the scenes was none other than Ichiro Ozawa.
It is too late. Because citizens have raised Ichiro Ozawa as dictator.
In Japan, citizens can freely criticize politicians, but most are too busy enjoying their food and are very indifferent to politics.
