Takeshita refuses to resign in gangster row
Tuesday 08 December 1992
Mr Takeshita has chosen to stake his reputation, and by extension that of the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, on his refusal to resign. Yesterday he said it was his duty to prove to the world that gangsters were not involved in inaugurating a Japanese government. However, few Japanese voters show confidence in the testimony of Mr Takeshita, who was forced to give up the prime ministership in 1989 because of his involvement in the Recruit shares-for-favours scandal. An opinion poll showed 70 per cent of people think he should resign.
