It's crazy that a politician who has seen three of his aides arrested would not volunteer to resign. I think he should quit.
Tomoki Tanaka, 25
I think he should explain what he has done. He cannot expect to have the trust of the Japanese public if he does not tell the truth.

I prefer Ozawa to (Prime Minister Yukio) Hatoyama. He seems a much more capable leader, even if he is always involved in scandals. I don't like his face, though.
Toshimitsu Komuro, 20
Ozawa is a politician too concerned with making money, but he has also worked hard for the good of the country, so I don't think he should quit.
Aki Iida, 21
He should definitely resign from the government. It's impossible for the public to trust anyone implicated in a scandal such as this.

The problems surrounding Ozawa are quite unusual, so I think he should tell the truth about exactly what he has been up to.
