Japan' s Leader of Opposition offers to resign

According to BBC, " Japan's main opposition leader Ichiro Ozawa has offered to resign from his position as head of the Democratic Party of Japan ". It is noteworthy that the chief of the Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ) comes under criticism and pressure from within the rank of the opposition front not because he has taken a hardline position vis-a-vis the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) government but, on the contrary, for appearing to be soft and entertaining the hope of compromising with PM Yasuo Fukuda on the question of forming a coalition government as a quid pro quo for legislative cooperation.

No end in sight of impasse in Japan' s politics
