The ruling Democratic Party of Japan has agreed with the main opposition Liberal Democratic Party to seek parliamentary passage by August the 26th of two key bills related to Prime Minister Naoto Kan's resignation.

Local media reports that following the agreement, there is a good chance that Kan will announce his resignation. Kan has suggested that he would quit after securing Diet passage of bills to allow the government to issue deficit-covering bonds this financial year and to promote the use of renewable energy.

The DPJ leadership will possibly hold the party's presidential election on August the 28th to choose Kan's successor.

Kan, who took office in June 2010, is under fire for his handling of the country's nuclear crisis.
