Japan's Internal Affairs and Communications Minister Kazuhiro Haraguchi speaks during an interview in Tokyo in this April 1, 2010 file photo.
Haraguchi is a possible successor to Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama after Hatoyama said on June 2, 2010, he and his powerful party No. 2, Ichiro Ozawa, would resign after a slide in the polls threatened their party's chances in an election expected next month.
