Prime Minister Kan Naoto has just spoken to an assembly of the Democratic Party of Japan. While acknowledging his faults, he seemed to urge his fellow party members to vote againt the no confidence motion. Former prime minister Hatoyama spoke next, and seemed to be saying that he tried to tell the PM, in a 30 minute conversation, to resign for the good of the party and the country. "Unfortunately" he said more than once, he was not successful. Haraguchi Kazuhiro spoke next and urged the PM to think about the children of the region around the destroyed nuclear power station.
And all during this, NHK has up in the corner, "Prime Minister Kan indicates that he will resign."
What am I missing here?
Later - I have no seen the replay of the conclusion of the PM's speech and he does indeed ask for the members of his party to reject the no confidence motion...and NHK still has "Prime Minister Kan indicates that he will resign" up in the top left corner
