    Background: URGENT TALKS ARE GOING ON IN JAPAN TO CHOOSE A SUCCESSOR TO MR. HAYATO IKEDA, WHO RESIGNED AS PRIME MINISTER THIS WEEK BECAUSE OF ILL-HEALTH. THE FIELD OF LIKELY CONTENDERS HAS BEEN NARROWED DOWN TO THREE.

    THE COMMITTEE QUESTIONED THE THREE CONTENDERS SEPARATELY REGARDING THEIR OPINIONS ON THE SUCCESSOR AND THEIR ATTITUDE TOWARDS ECONOMIC AND FOREIGN POLICY QUESTIONS.

    MR. FUJIYAMA, IS A FORMER FOREIGN MINISTER. MR. KONO IS THE MINISTER OF STATE AND ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL POLITICIANS IN THE LIBERAL-DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

    BUT FAVOURITE FOR THE JOB IS MR. SATO, THE 63-YEAR-OLD FORMER MINISTER OF INTERNATIONAL TRADE WHO EARLIER THIS YEAR UNSUCCESSFULLY CHALLENGED MR. IKEDA FOR THE PARTY PRESIDENCY AND THE PREMIERSHIP. HE SAYS THAT HE WOULD CONTINUE THE PRESENT GOVERNMENT POLICIES.

    THE PARTY'S ELDER STATESMAN, MR. SHIGERU YOSHIDA, HIMSELF A FORMER PRIME MINISTER, IS EXPECTED TO BE CALLED IN FOR ADVICE. A FINAL DECISION, WHICH HAS TO BE APPROVED BY MR. IKEDA, IS EXPECTED NEXT WEEK.
