Japan PM Faces No-Confidence Vote

Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan is facing a no-confidence vote for allegedly mishandling the radiation leak at the Fukushima nuclear plant following the massive earthquake and tsunami which struck Japan in March, AP reported.

"What is most sought by the people is for us to work together to achieve reconstruction and resolve the nuclear crisis," Kan told opposition leaders during a parliamentary debate on Wednesday.

As his Democratic Party of Japan controls the country's powerful lower house of parliament, it is expected that he will survive the vote. However, if Kan fails, he will have to resign or call for new elections.

On March 11, a 9-magnitude earthquake, off the northeast coast of Japan's main island, unleashed a 30-foot (10-meter) tsunami wave, which knocked out the power to the cooling system of reactors at the Fukushima plant, causing a radiation leak.
