Obuchi named prime minister in

Keizo Obuchi (standing), president of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), receives applause at the House of Representatives in Tokyo on July 30 after the lower house named him new prime minister, succeeding Ryutaro Hashimoto. Obuchi is virtually assured of the prime ministership as the LDP controls the lower house, which has the final say over who becomes prime minister. The House of Councillors gave the post to opposition Democratic Party of Japan leader Naoto Kan.
