Finance Minister Yoshihiko Noda has been selected to become Japan's next prime minister after defeating Trade Minister Banri Kaieda in the leadership run-off.

Noda, who came in second in the first round of voting, received a sound majority in the second round. The main challenges facing the 54-year-old include a resurgent yen, a credit downgrade, ending the Fukushima nuclear crisis and rebuilding Japan in the wake of the March 11th tsunami and earthquake.

Yoshihiko Noda said, "A Democratic Party of the people must not let democracy die. We must grit our teeth and sweat it out for the people and create stable politics."
