Japan PM choses new finance minister

Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama said on Wednesday Deputy Prime Minister Naoto Kan will become finance minister, succeeding Hirohisa Fujii who is resigning due to ill health.

Yoshito Sengoku, administrative reform minister, will take on Kan's previous portfolio of National Strategy Minister.

Fujii, 77, was admitted to hospital for tests last week and later said he was worn out by wrangling over finalising Japan's budget.
