Naoto Kan, Japan's prime minister and president of the ruling Democratic Party of Japan (DPJ), right, shakes hands with Ichiro Ozawa, former secretary general of DPJ, during a debate in the party's presidential election in Tokyo. Each candidate has the support of about 190 Democratic Party of Japan legislators in today’s vote, with between 20 and 30 undecided, the Nikkei newspaper said today, citing its own estimates.
