optimistic hope that the president knows what he's doing he is a businessman they hope that he's assembled the right team to resuscitate the ailing economy but there are some people we've spoken to over the past few days who have been very skeptical of prison and are they saying he's part of the old system he's been in government is one hundred eighty he's been a close ally of god with a former president he's helped he helped keep probably in power for thirty seven years if you have been asking really what is he going to do to make things change if he was part of the old system he benefited from the old system time will tell what will play out in the next few days next year respects the months but i think the initial response from people who hoped who hope that the new president will be more inclusive in his cabinet may be disappointment but that said they still some cautious optimism people waiting hoping that the new president has some kind of plan to resuscitate the ailing economy. now

a date has been set for the planned abdication of japan's emperor akihito a special panel chaired by the prime minister shinzo lobby has decided he will step down on the thirtieth of april twenty ninth teen the japanese monarch who's had heart surgery would be succeeded by his eldest son crown prince now return the application is the first back japanese monarch in about two hundred years and let's get more now from michael penn he's president of the shin get sued news agency and joins us live via skype from tokyo michael pena how significant is this announcement that a date has not been set for the empress application oh it's reasonably. close now. a little institution was. changing the calendar. which is based on the year of the reign of the emperor so that means that everything will need to switch over q thousand nineteen that he same. calendar whatever the name of the new reign will be which has been announced yet so little
6:13 am
business and planning now it was hard to think that people were so what's what's forced the abdication as it is held for is that public opinion or both well actually what was the application of the emperor himself and he basically made it very clear that unlike his predecessors he didn't want to reign until death look i've worked all my life as a symbol of the nation and i'm tired and my health is declining and it's time for need to step aside and certainly it was really the emperor himself who started this debate and said i walk out and this was the government didn't want. to eventually go along and was likely to change then when the crown prince now ready to take over. probably not a great deal because the current crown prince has a very similar point of view his father. the current employer akihito
