TOKYO (AP) Japan`s capital is voting Sunday for its leader after two predecessors resigned over money scandals as Tokyo prepares to host the 2020 Olympics, and hopes to lead the nation in an economic turnaround. Among the top candidates for the governor of Tokyo, with a population of more than 13 million people and an annual budget bigger than Sweden`s, are former defense minister Yuriko Koike, journalist Shuntaro Torigoe and former rural governor Hiroya Masuda. If Koike wins, she would become Tokyo`s first female governor. All the candidates are promising cleaner politics and efforts to respond to everyday issues such as the need for more child care centers so more women can work.
