Yoshihiko Noda and Naoto Kan, prime minister of Japan

Yoshihiko Noda is the new prime minister of Japan, the seventh one in the last six years. UK’s Guardian quotes Sheila Smith, a senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington as saying, “[Noda] has a steady temperament and a reputation for fairness in a party where loyalties have been severely tested of late.”

In today’s age, the really important question is: will he look good in viral photos?

Pictured on the left is the Noda, the man in question. On the right is Naoto Kan, the prime minister who just wouldn’t let go.
