Japan PM says won't quit even when facing no-confidence vote.

(Reuters) - Unpopular Japanese Prime Minister Naoto Kan on Tuesday refused to step down in the face of a no-confidence motion in parliament this week, saying he wanted first to resolve the world's worst nuclear crisis in 25 years.Analysts say Kan would probably survive the vote, which could be submitted on Wednesday, but add he would still face big hurdles pushing policies through a divided parliament, including an extra budget to help pay for the recovery from damage caused by the March earthquake and tsunami that crippled the Fukushima nuclear plant and devastated northeast Japan.

"I cannot give up the responsibility to do what needs to be done now. I would like to resolve the nuclear crisis first," Kan told a panel in parliament."I am determined to perform my duty."Pressure from inside his own party mounted after media said ruling party power broker Ichiro Ozawa had hinted he would back the no-confidence motion if Kan refused to quit.

Rivals in the ruling Democratic Party (DPJ) want Kan to quit before a no-confidence vote, clearing the way for a new leader who can form a coalition with the opposition Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) to break the policy logjam in a parliament, where the opposition can block bills in the upper house.
Kan, who took office last June as the fifth premier in as many years, is battling to control the nuclear crisis, figure out how to pay for rebuilding the northeast region hit by the quake and tsunami, and draft tax reforms to pay for rising social security costs.

The government needs to enact a bill enabling the issuance of fresh bonds to fund 44 percent of the $1 trillion budget for the year from April and find ways to pay for rebuilding from the natural disasters, Japan's biggest reconstruction project since after World War Two.
The LDP and its allies need 70 or more of the 305 ruling Democratic Party lower house members to defect to secure passage of the motion, which would force Kan to resign or call a snap lower house election.
Kan's departure could ease the path for a coalition with the LDP, but who would replace him is unclear and whether a new premier would be able to manage such an unwieldy group is in doubt. Many think Kan is too stubborn to quit.

Ozawa, a veteran politician known as the "Destroyer" for his record of shaking up politics, told his followers he would push for Kan to step down on his own but hinted he would back the no-confidence motion if that failed, media quoted sources close to him as saying.
"If such efforts are unsuccessful, I will make a decision when I need to," Ozawa was quoted as saying.Some analysts said financial markets would welcome Kan's resignation since a broad coalition with the LDP would make it easier to agree on tough policy decisions such as raising the 5 percent sales tax to pay for ballooning social security costs.

"A formation of a grand coalition will be a big win for Japanese politics after the poor performance following the earthquake," said Takuji Okubo, chief Japan economist at Societe Generale Corporate and Investment Banking.
Others questioned the wisdom of political infighting at a time when Japan faces so many challenges.Data on Tuesday showed the economy was rebounding from the natural disasters, but doubts remain about the outlook for long-term reforms.

"Do they just want to bully Kan? Do they have anyone who can replace him? Do they have an extra budget plan? I don't know why they are trying to create a tense political situation now," said Kyohei Morita, chief economist at Barclays Capital Japan. "From foreign investors' point of view, it is hard to predict what will happen to policies and they will probably avoid getting involved with a risk of the unknown."

Post-tsunami rebuilding ,Japan plans budget

Japan drew up an extra budget worth over $50 billion on Friday to help finance post-tsunami reconstruction efforts.

The Cabinet of Prime Minister Naoto Kan approved the budget totaling 4.02 trillion yen ($50 billion), the finance ministry said. Japan's parliament is expected to pass the budget next week.
"This is the first step toward rebuilding Japan after the major disasters," Finance Minister Yoshihiko Noda told reporters.

The government will allocate around 1.2 trillion yen to fix roads and ports damaged by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. The twin disasters decimated much of northeastern Japan and killed more than 25,000 people.

Under the budget, the government will spend over 362 billion yen to build temporary homes for disaster victims, with another 352 billion yen for clearing rubble. The government has said the cost of the tsunami disasters could reach $309 billion, making it the world's most expensive natural disaster on record.

Hot and cool in RI Politics- Rhode.

Who’s Hot
John Loughlin - Best of luck to the former (and future?) Republican candidate in the 1st District as he heads back to Iraq. As GoLocalProv first reported, Loughlin (at right) says he’s returning to active duty, but he’ll be back in plenty of time when and if he decides to make a run at the ever-vulnerable David Cicilline. If nothing else, it’s a great political move by Loughlin, who will now be able to match his experience serving overseas with Brendan Doherty’s time as head of the state police should the two run against each other in a Republican primary.

Lincoln Chafee - The Governor is on YouTube. This is better than the time the Providence Democrats started a website. All he needs now is a blog and a quirky screen name and he’ll have officially joined the 21st century. All kidding aside, it’s a smart move for the governor to spread his message himself as opposed to letting talk radio or other media outlets set the tone for him.

Travis Rowley - Gave an impassioned speech at last week’s Tax Day rally, and followed that up by taking a major risk by throwing his support behind upstart Barry Hinckley in the 2012 U.S. Senate race. It’s a great hire by Hinckley, who is trying to establish himself as the socially moderate candidate in what looks to be a crowded field next year. The big question: Can Rowley help rally enough Young Republicans to help push Hinckley past a Don Carcieri type?

Kate Brock - Say what you will about the Governor’s tax proposal, but at least Kate Brock was willing to publicly support the plan. If more progressives were willing to go to bat for the guy they helped get elected, the plan might have some legs.

Providence City Council - You remember all those times the Council voted to approve Mayor Cicilline’s budgets? Apparently neither do they. At least they’re now willing to admit their mistakes and they appear ready to help move the city forward. That said, a criminal investigation into Cicilline’s actions might be a little much.

Scott Avedisian - Here’s why the “Governor Carcieri cut hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to cities and towns” argument has little merit: Despite the cuts and the horrible economic climate, the mayor of Warwick was able to generate a surplus this year.

Keith Oliveira - Welcome to the Providence School Committee, Keith. You’re coming on board at a time when teachers, parents and students aren’t the biggest fans of the school board. Good luck!

Who’s Not

David Cicilline - Things continue to get worse for the freshman Congressman (at left), whose popularity might be hovering somewhere in the single digits at this point. During his inauguration speech, Mayor Taveras said history will show Cicilline was a good leader of the city. You have to wonder if he’s kicking himself for that statement now.

Providence Retirement Board - It’s one thing to disapprove of Cicilline, it’s another to suggest he should lose a pension he can’t even apply for. Taking away pensions for doing a poor job isn’t the path this group should want to go down. Because if they do, Cicilline and Cianci won’t be the only two they will have to go after.

Individuals Demanding Economic Accountability - Nice to know the conservative group formed last year only now wants to step up and offer advice to the governor. It would have saved a lot of time to have reached out before the guy proposed a crazy sales tax plan.
Deborah Cylke - The other Deborah in education in Rhode Island made a mistake this week when she defended spending almost $3,000 to send one of her school board members across the country to a national conference. There are people on that board that don’t know what’s happening in their own city. Maybe she should have taken the time to train them on that first.

Lisa Tomasso - There are plenty of people who would have no problem presenting their ID when they use their EBT card. But the idea that anyone would be turned away from buying food because they don’t have proper ID is outrageous. Maybe it’s time to stop attempting to balance to budget on the backs of poor people.

Johnson & Wales University - Really, JWU? Are you really presenting a governor who spent eight years cutting millions of dollars in aid to higher education with an honorary degree? What’s it going to say, “Thanks for allowing us to offer even crappier financial aid packages to our already in-debt students?”

After World Cup loss, Sangakkara quits as captain

Kumar Sangakkara is set to step down as Sri Lanka captain following his team's defeat to India in the final of the just-concluded World Cup. 

According to sources here, Sangakkara has expressed his desire to relinquish the post to Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), though he is willing to play for another 2 to 3 years. 

The player is expected to make an official statement later in the day.
There is also speculation that the 33-year-old left-handed batsman would retire from One-day Internationals and the Twenty20 format. 

Sources claimed that Sangakkara will leave his post at the end of Sri Lanka's tour of England, which ends with the third and final One-day International in Lord's on July 3. 

Sri Lanka are due to start their first of the three-match Test series against England in Cardiff on May 26.
Sangakkara, 33, made his debut in 2000 and took over the captaincy from Mahela Jayawardene in 2007.

WRAPUP 5-Japan uses bath salts to find leak, and release radioactive water into sea.

* Operators forced to release radioactive water into sea

* Bath salts, sea curtain sought to stop radiation leaks
* Government demands quick action to avoid fouling sea
* Business sentiment turns negative after disaster (Adds latest on radiation leaks, quotes, economy)
By Risa Maeda and Yoko Kubota

TOKYO, April 4 (Reuters) - Japanese engineers on Monday were forced to release radioactive water into the sea while resorting to desperate measures such as using bath salts to try to find the source of the leaks at a crippled nuclear power complex.

Engineers also planned to build a giant silt curtain in the ocean to stop the spread of more contamination from the Fukushima Daiichi plant.
The plant operator had to release low-level radioactive seawater that had been used to cool overheated fuel rods after it ran out of storage capacity for more highly contaminated water, Chief Cabinet Secretary Yukio Edano said.

Operator Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) said it would release over 10,000 tonnes of contaminated water that was about 100 times more radioactive than legal limits.

Engineers are still struggling to regain control of damaged reactors at the plant in the worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl in 1986, with the government urging TEPCO to act faster to stop radiation spreading.
But it could take months to stem the leaks, warned one official, and even longer to regain control of the power station, damaged by a March 11 earthquake and tsunami.

"We need to stop the spread of (contaminated water) into the ocean as soon as possible. With that strong determination, we are asking Tokyo Electric Power Co to act quickly," said Edano.
"If the current situation continues for a long time, accumulating more radioactive substances, it will have a huge impact on the ocean."

In the face of Japan's biggest crisis since World War Two, one newspaper poll said nearly two-thirds of voters wanted the government to form a coalition with the major opposition party and work together to recover from the natural disaster.

Underlining the concern over the impact on the world's third largest economy, a central bank survey showed big manufacturers expected business conditions to worsen significantly in the next three months, although they were not quite as pessimistic as some analysts had expected.
