Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Yoshihiko Noda elected Japan's new PMTokyo - Japan's ruling party has elected Finance Minister Yoshihiko Noda as its new chief, meaning he will almost certainly become the next prime minister and inherit the challenge of rebuilding from the country's disasters.

Noda, 54, is known as a fiscal conservative. He defeated Trade Minister Banri Kaieda on Monday in a run-off election 215-177 after none of the five candidates won a majority in the first round.

Noda will inherit a host of daunting challenges, from a sluggish economy to the massive reconstruction after March's tsunami and nuclear crisis.

 
He will go on to become prime minister because the ruling Democrats control the more powerful lower house of Parliament.
